Already improving on his early success this season, this week’s Athlete of the Week is Glenn Guilmette. The senior javelin thrower posted a 211’3” throw at the Mount Holyoke Spring Fling meet on March 30, 2013. His throw currently has him sitting atop the Division III national rankings.
Guilmette is now only six feet short of the 217’9” school-record mark he set at last year’s DIII national championships. Guilmette will look to be in the mix for the top national ranking all season and secure another trip back to nationals.
The first runner-up this week is Tyler McKelvie of the Keene State College Men’s Lacrosse Team. McKelvie had five goals in the squad’s 14-12 victory over Southern Maine University.
McKelvie had two of his goals in each of the first two quarters of the game, and then poured it on in the third quarter, with three more scores. McKelvie’s efforts kept the Owls close in the back and forth contest until KSC could eventually pull away from Southern Maine in the final quarter of the game.
The second runner-up this week is Mariah Crisp of the KSC Softball team.
Crisp pitched all seven innings of the first game of the team’s double-header against State University of New York at Old Westbury. She held Old Westbury to five runs, claiming the 6-5 victory. This elevated Crisp’s season record to 5-2.
She then did some relief work for KSC, pitching one and one-third innings to close the Owls’ 6-1 victory in the second game. Crisp struck out three of the five batters she faced to pick up her first save of the year.
