Sarah Quinn Named NEWMAC Cross Country Runner of the Week

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Freshman Sarah Quinn (Watchung, N.Y.) was named the NEWMAC Women's Cross Country Runner of the Week after a fourth place finish in the 6k course at the Purple Valley Classic this weekend. She completed the race in 22:30, the fastest of any MIT runner on that course to date.

Just 10 seconds separated Quinn from first place finisher Addie Tousley of Middlebury College, which was ranked third in last week's USTFCCCA poll. The highly competitive field included runners from No. 7 Williams, No. 11 Amherst, No. 18 Tufts, No. 19 Ohio Northern, No. 27 NYU and No. 35 Oberlin.

MIT will have a weekend off before they take part in the New England Championship on Sunday, Oct. 7.
