Three athletes from Keene State College’s very own teams, received Little East Conference (LEC) Athletes of the Week awards.
Two athletes from the men’s cross country team, senior lid Sheikh-Yusuf and first-year Cameron Stinchfield, received the award after their impressive finishes. Sheikh-Yusuf, a management major from Portland Maine, was named the Men’s Cross Country Runner of the Week after finishing third at the Smith College Invitational. He finished with a time of 27:31.6. The senior finished fourth at the Little East Championships last year, which was the best finish for the Owls.
Freshman Cameron Stinchfield, who is from Wakefield New Hampshire, was named as the Men’s Cross Country Rookie Runner of the Week for his sixth place finish in the same event. The first-year crossed the finish line with a time of 28:09.0.
Sophomore Isaiah Lovering from the KSC men’s soccer team, also received an award. Lovering was chosen as the Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week. Hailing from Henniker, New Hampshire, the sophomore led the Owls defense. Lovering hustled to get a 2-0 shutout against Rivier University on September fourth, scoring both goals at the other end of the field.
