BRIDGEWATER, Mass. -- Bridgewater State University freshman Tess Miller has been selected as the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Women's Outdoor Track & Field Rookie of the Week.
Miller placed fourth in the 400-meter dash at the AIC Yellow Jacket Invitational this past weekend with a DIII New England qualifying time of 1:00.46. The Uxbridge, Massachusetts native also ran a leg on the Bears’ 4x100-meter relay team which finished sixth with a time of 51.24 seconds.
The MASCAC Rookie of the Week accolade marks Miller's ninth of the 2016-2017 academic year. She also garnered the honor an impressive eight times during the indoor track & field season.
The BSU women's outdoor track & field team is back in action on Saturday as the Bears will compete at the Jerry Gravel Classic hosted by Westfield State University.
