Senior Alex Norstrom was named Northeast Conference Athlete of the Week it was announced by league office on Wednesday.
Norstrom opened up his 2018 season with a third place finish at Bryant's Shawn M. Nassaney Memorial Invitational that featured 98 runners from the likes of Boston College, Northeastern, URI, and five NEC schools. The Coventry native navigated the 8K course in 25:02.7 to claim the conference's top time from the meet and lead CCSU to a second place result behind the Huskies.
A top-five finisher at the NEC Championship last season, Norstrom will look to continue the momentum into the Ted Owen Invitational that will again match him up with the NEC's best.
Men's cross country returns to action on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Ted Owen Invitational in New Britain, CT. The meet is scheduled to begin at 11:45 a.m.
