Paul Harris Named ECAC Track Athlete of the Week
March 27, 2008
CENTERVILLE, Mass. - One day after earning Patriot League Track Athlete-of-the-Week honors, Navy men's track & field middle distance runner Paul Harris (Sr./Fairburn, Ga.) has been recognized as the ECAC Track Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced it on Wednesday night.
This marks the first time in Harris's career that he has been distinguished by the ECAC during the outdoor season. The Navy middle distance runner has twice been named the ECAC Track Athlete of the Week during indoor action during his career.
Harris delivered an IC4A time in winning a very competitive 800-meter race in Saturday's five-team meet in Annapolis. The Navy senior crossed the finish line in 1:51.83, 0.04-second ahead of second place Carlos Jamieson's time from American and 0.08-second ahead of teammate Craig Meekins's (Sr./Baldwin, N.Y.) third-place showing.
Harris and the Midshipmen (6-0) will remain home this Saturday to take on Colgate, Penn and Princeton at Ingram Field, starting at 11 a.m.
