Gaudreault Tabbed ECAC New England Women's Track Athlete of the Week
Centerville, Mass. - February 14, 2014
- Senior Gabriella Gaudreault (Leominster, Mass.)
continued to earn recognition for her record-breaking 800 meter run last weekend as she was tabbed the ECAC Division III New England Women's Track Athlete of the Week.
The senior ran the fastest time in the 800 meter in school history on Friday at the 2014 Boston University David Hemery Valentine Invitational.
Running in her first 800 race of the season, Gaudreault finished 10th in a field of 160 runners with a time of 2:09.57. Currently the fastest time in Division III this year and the 7th-fastest time in the history of Division III, Gaudreault broke Springfield's indoor 800 record, which was previously held by Heather Cayward, who ran a 2:12.82 in 1993.
Last spring, Gaudreault set the outdoor record in the 800 as she placed fourth at the NCAA Championships with a time of 2:09.80 to earn All-America honors.
