O’Brien and McGuffie Honored by the Little East

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. - The Little East Conference has named senior Renee O'Brien (Stoneham, Mass.) and sophomore Hulerie McGuffie (Lynn, Mass.) this week's Field and Track Athletes of the Week.

The Field Athlete of the Week honor marks the first of the year for O'Brien, while the Track Athlete of the Week honor for McGuffie is her second straight and third of the 2013-14 season. 

For O'Brien she currently sits tied for ninth in Division III after recording a jump of 5-05.00 feet at Friday's Boston University Terrier Classic.  The mark was a new personal best for the senior and was 1.50 inches from tying the all-time program record which has stood since 1986.

McGuffie sprinted her way to a new program record in the 200 meter dash at Friday's BU Terrier Classic.  The Lynn native currently sits third in the country in the event with her record setting time of 25.34 seconds.  She posted the fastest time of any Division III in the event and broke the record .10 seconds.
