Freshman McKenna Kilian of the Central Connecticut women's indoor track and field team was tabbed the NEC Women's Rookie Athlete of the Week after recording a fourth place finish this past Friday in the pentathlon at the Elm City Challenge hosted by Southern Connecticut in New Haven, CT, it was announced in a release by the NEC front office on Tuesday afternoon.
OFFICIAL NEC RELEASE
Kilian eclipsed the 3,000-point mark in the pentathlon during her first-ever collegiate competition. Working her way toward a fourth-place overall finish at Southern Connecticut State's Elm City Challenge, the first-year Blue Devil totaled 3,019 points to finish second amongst NEC pentathletes contesting the meet. Kilian produced marks that rank her amongst the conference's top-eight leaders in three separate events. Her high jump and long jump performances are both good enough for seventh place on the early-season NEC leader board while her 800 meter time is eighth-best.
Kilian and the rest of the CCSU women's indoor track and field team will return to action next in the new year on Jan. 9 at the Yale Collegiate Invite at Coxe Cage in New Haven, CT.
