PROVIDENCE, R.I.- Junior Ryan McGuire has been tabbed as this week’s BIG EAST Cross Country Athlete of the Week as announced by the conference office on Tuesday afternoon. McGuire has been the consistent leader for UConn being the first Husky to cross the finish line in the three meets of 2012.
McGuire placed 17th out 261 runners at this past weekend’s New England Championships with a time of 24:48.15. He was the only runner from UConn to record a top-50 time as he recorded a 3:06.1 every 1K. The Connecticut squad finished 10th in Sunday’s 8K meet.
"Congratulations to Ryan! It has been great to see him develop over his career," UConn coach Rich Miller commented.
The Huskies will return to competition on Saturday, October 13 at the Conn College Invite at Harkness Park in New London, Conn.
