NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Junior Matt Hinthorne (Braintree, MA/Braintree HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's track and field team has been honored by the Little East Conference.
Hinthorne has been named LEC Men's Track Athlete of the Week.
At Saturday's Harvard Open, Hinthorne set a school record when he finished first at 600 meters in 1:21.76.
"Matt ran a very strong race in his first race of the year," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "To open up with a school record in one of his main events certainly bodes well for what 2013 has in store for him."
The Corsairs will return to action when they travel to Tufts January 12th.
