The Chicopee, Mass. native was a double-event winner in his first ever collegiate track & field meet, sweeping the 60-meter dash and the long jump.
The freshman ran to a winning time of 7.02 in the 60-meter dash, which is the second-fastest time in school history. He also won the long jump with a distance of 22-feet, 8-inches, more than a foot better than the nearest competitor.
With the wins, Niemiec qualified for the Division III New England Championship, the ECAC Championship and the Open New England Championship in both events.
The Pride will be back in action on January 18, traveling to Bowdoin College.
