Athletes of the Week

Week 2

 

The 1st Athlete of the Week awards come after a pretty busy weekend of racing for New Jersey's Harriers. Both of this week's winners distinguished themselves last season and seem to be picking up right where they left off in the search for a Meet of Chmpions title in November.

Congratulations to this week's honorees.
