            GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced its first set of weekly honors for the 2021 indoor track and field season with University of Southern Maine freshman Olivia Jalbert (Auburn, Maine/Edward Little) and graduate student Lucy Knowlton (Portland, Maine) among the recipients.

            Jalbert was selected as the Rookie Field Athlete of the Week, and Knowlton was picked as the Track Athlete of the Week.

            Competing in her first collegiate meet, Jalbert was a double winner taking the top spot in the high jump (1.57 meters/5-1¾) on the tiebreaker and the long jump (4.69 meters/15-4¾).  Knowlton won the mile (5:29.39) in her only race of the meet.

            Southern Maine won the meet with Husson University 81-45.  Only the team’s top two finishers in each event were scored in the unique team-scoring format.

            The Huskies are scheduled to be back in competition this weekend at the Costello Sports Complex field house.  The meet schedule and competing teams will be announced later this week.
