As the only Keene State College fall athlete still competing, this week’s Athlete of the Week is cross-country runner Maggie Fitter.
The senior Owl out of Branford, Conn. qualified for the NCAA Championships at Terra Haute, Ind. with her ninth place finish this past weekend.
Fitter’s 21:56 finish at the NCAA Regional meet has kept her season alive as she remains as the last Owl on the course late in the fall season.

The first runner-up this week is the Keene State College Volleyball team’s Sammy Dormio. The standout outside hitter led the Owls as they took on the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament.
Dormio led KSC both offensively and defensively throughout the tournament.
Dormio had six kills and a game-high 13 digs in the team’s opening round victory over Daniel Webster College. She also had 16 kills and an equal number of digs, both team bests, as KSC fell to Western New England College in the tournament semi-finals.
As the offensive focal point for the KSC Women’s soccer team, the second runner-up this week is Hayley Kenyon.
The junior had the only goal in KSC’s 1-0 victory over Albertus Magnus in the ECAC tournament.
In addition, Exeter, R.I product assisted teammate Jessica Berthiaume‘s goal in the squad’s 3-1 defeat to Endicott College.
