Jeremy Francisco Earns Little East Conference Honors

Nov. 2, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-For the sixth time this season, freshman Jeremy Francisco (Dartmouth, MA/Dartmouth HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Francisco has been named LEC Rookie Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week.

Francisco was the Corsairs' third runner at the Little East Conference and New England Alliance Championships Saturday, finishing 19th overall in the five mile race in 27:44.

"This is Jeremy's six week winning this award, and that speaks for his remarkable consistency," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Jon Hird. "We keep waiting for him to have a bad race, but, thankfully, he has kept us waiting. Freshmen aren't supposed to be this good and steady, but Jeremy is both, luckily for UMass Dartmouth."

The Corsairs will return to action when they travel to the NCAA Division III New England Regional Championships a week from Saturday.
