WORCESTER, Mass. – Following a pair of strong performances this past weekend, Victoria Steffon (Holden, Mass. / Wachusett Regional) has been named the NE10 Rookie of the Week.
Steffon posted a career-best time of 25.64 seconds in the 200 meters at the URI Sorlein Invitational over the weekend. The time was good enough for sixth overall, while ranking as the top time in the 200 meters for any freshman in the East Region. She also took sixth in the 60 meters, and second among DII runners, with her time of 7.99 seconds.
This marks the second time this year Assumption has had a freshman student-athlete earn weekly honors, as Claudia Koontz (Concord, Mass. / Concord-Carlisle Regional) was selected as Rookie of the Week on Dec. 11.
Assumption returns to action on Saturday when the team travels to the University of Southern Maine to compete. For the latest on Assumption College Athletics, follow the Hounds via social media on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
