    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -

    Freshman Sarah Mary Collins (Basel, Switzerland) was named BIG EAST Women’s Cross Country Athlete of the Week after helping the Friars with a third place finish on Friday, Sept. 28, at the Paul Short Invitational which was held at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa.

    On Friday, Collins finished the 6K course with a time of 20:23, only 25 seconds behind the race winner.  The team finished sixth on the day with 167 points, and had two finishers in the top-10.  It was the second impressive performance from Collins, who placed third at the Wolfie Invitational two weeks prior, finishing behind teammates, senior Shelby Greany (Suffern, N.Y.) and junior Laura Nagel (Napier, New Zealand). 

    The Friar women will have this week off to prepare for the University of Wisconsin Invitational on Friday, October 12 in Madison, Wis.
