COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College women's cross country junior Abby French (Nashua, N.H./Academy of Notre Dame) was named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 7. The weekly accolade was the 10th of French's career, and her third this season.
French placed ninth among 214 runners on Saturday during the James Earley Invitational at Stanley Park in Westfield, Mass. She set a personal record of 18:53.91 while helping Saint Michael's finish ninth among 36 schools. French has paced the Purple and Gold in all 16 races over the past three seasons, finishing among the top 10 at 10 meets. Each of her past four races has yielded a top-10 showing, a career-best streak.
The Saint Michael's cross country teams are back in action on Oct. 20 at the Bruce Kirsh Cross Country Cup at the Hopkinton State Fairgrounds in Contoocook, N.H. The women begin at 12 p.m. before the men race 45 minutes later.
