NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA--Junior Krista Chauvin (Seekonk, MA/Seekonk HS/Stonehill) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's track and field team has been honored.

Chauvin has been named LEC Women's Field Athlete of the Week.

At last Saturday's Coast Guard Invitational, Chauvin won the hammer throw with a toss of 175 feet, five inches, and was second in the discus at 124-5.

"It was a good season opening performance for Krista, who had the seventh best throw in the country last year," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "For her to open the season with a throw close to what she threw last year bodes well for the future. The award was well-deserved on her part."

The Corsairs will return to action Saturday when they host the annual Corsair Classic.
