Jermai Harrison Earns Little East Conference Honors

Feb. 22, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Junior Jermai Harrison (Brockton, MA/Brockton HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

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

At last week's New England Division III Championships, Harrison placed second in the shot put with a throw of 39 feet, six inches.

"Jermai was able to follow up her conference championship from the previous week with her highest finish so far in her career at the New England Division III Championships," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "She's been very consistent throughout the season, and this is the third consecutive New England Division III Championships at which she has scored in the shot put."

The Corsairs will return to action at the Open New England Championships at Boston University this weekend.
