Feb. 8, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Once again, freshman Kaylin Miranda (Brighton, MA/O'Bryant HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Miranda has been named LEC Men's Co-Rookie Field Athlete of the Week.

Miranda won the long jump at Saturday's Tufts Stampede with a leap of 21 feet, 5 ½ inches.

"Kaylin won that meet on his last jump, which shows his competitive nature," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "He is in the midst of having an outstanding freshman year, having already qualified provisionally for the NCAAs with a jump of 22 feet, 9 ½ inches."

The Corsairs will return to action at the Little East Conference and New England Alliance Championships at Southern Maine Saturday.
