Feb. 16, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Once again, freshman Kim Urena (Marlborough, MA/Marlborough HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Urena has been named LEC Women's Rookie Track Athlete of the Week.

Last Saturday, Urena won both Little East Conference and New England Alliance Championship at 600 meters in a school record time of 1:38.78,

"Kim's performance was very impressive, since this was only her fourth race of the indoor season," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "She is a very determined competitor. As we approach our championship meets at the end of the season, she is in a good position to improve on her times."

The Corsairs will return to action at the New England Division III Championships Saturday.
