As the top performer for the KSC Men’s Track and Field team this past week, this week’s Athlete of the Week is Ryan Widzgowski.
Widzgowski finished second in the one mile run at the Division III New England Championship, which was held at Bates College in Maine.
The junior finished with a time of 4:13.83, just .6 seconds behind Bowdoin College’s Horowitz, Coby. He is currently ranked fourteenth among Division III runners in the one mile. Only the top 15 DIII runners will get a ticket to the NCAA Division III National Championships.
Widzgowski has to hope his time is good enough to hold off the rest of the pack fighting for a spot at nationals. He was also named the Little East Conference Track Athlete of the Week.
This week’s first runner-up is Josh Tuller of the KSC Men’s Swimming and Diving Team.
As the sole diver representing the Owls at the New England Swimming and Diving Championships, Tully made quite the splash.
He took home first place in the three-meter dive and placed third in the one-meter dive event.
Tuller’s top finishes in the final two events helped KSC bring home first place in the overall team standings at the Championships.
The second runner-up this week is Julie Trodden of the KSC Women’s swimming and diving team.
Trodden won the 1650-yard freestyle swim at the Huskie Invitational, held at the University of Connecticut.
Trodden was the first to touch the wall with a final time of 17:30.15.
