Jeremy Francisco Earns Little East Conference Honors

Sept. 21, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-For the second week in a row, freshman Jeremy Francisco (Dartmouth, MA/Dartmouth HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Once again, Francisco has been named LEC Rookie Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week. He was so honored last week.

Francisco led all rookie Little East Conference runners at Saturday's UMass Dartmouth Invitational. He finished 56th overall in the five-mile race with a time of 26 minutes and 13 seconds.

"I hope this is habit forming," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Jon Hird. "When Jeremy runs the way he's been running, it allows the gap between our one and five runners to be down around 35 seconds, and that's the mark of a real quality team."

The Corsairs will return to action when they travel to Connecticut College this Saturday.
