Casiglio was named NECC Rookie of the Week for the third straight week after breaking Lesley's course record with a time of 27:04 on the 8k course, leading all NECC men on Saturday. The freshman led the Lynx to a 14th place finish out of 23 teams.
On the women's side, Kupfer was named NECC Runner of the Week. The sophomore finished in 15th place at the Pop Crowell, completing the 5k course in 19:55. With a time over two minutes better than the next non-Lesley finisher, Kupfer led Lesley to an eighth-place finish out of 26 teams.
