NEWMAC Men’s Track Athlete of the Week
Austin Scott, WPI (Waddington, N.Y.)
Scott reset a 16 year old WPI record with a 14:54.49 in the 5,000-meter run during the elite distance portion of the Conn. College Silfen Invitational. The top NEWMAC time of the season was better than the 14:56.10 that Justin Lutz ‘02 handed in back in 2001. The performance was also quicker than the NEWMAC meet record time of 14:55.82 set by MIT’s Sean Nolan in 2002 and would have been 10th at last year’s NCAA Championships.
