The sophomore from Harrington, Maine has excelled in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters during the indoor and outdoor track seasons this year. Ganiel earned first place finishes in 3,000 meters at the New England Challenge (January 11) and the 5,000 meters at the University of Connecticut (April 5) and the Brown Invitational (April 20).
