GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference, in its ongoing recognition of senior student-athletes this spring, this week recognizes the 33 senior men’s track and field athletes as its Athletes of the Week. Among the athletes honored are the University of Southern Maine’s six seniors, Connor Goodall (Gorham, Maine), Nick Harriman (Lisbon, Maine), Cam Labrie (Tamworth, N.H./Kennett.), Jared Marshall (Gloucester, Mass.), C.J. Moody (Old Town, Maine), and Jack Ricker (Conway, N.H./Kennett).
A transfer from the University of New Hampshire, Goodall has spent three seasons competing in the pole vault. Majoring in history, Goodall is a past recipient of the Athletic Department’s William B. Wise Scholar-Athlete Award. He tied for third in the pole vault at this winter’s LEC indoor championships.
A four-year member of the cross country and track programs, Harriman won the 5,000 meters at the LEC indoor championships in February. A double major in business management and finance, Harriman was the 2016 LEC Rookie of the Year in cross country, and is a two-time champion outdoors in the 5,000 meters. He has received the Wise Scholar-Athlete Award twice.
Labrie came to USM in 2017 from White Mountain CC and plans to return next year to complete his degree in exercise science. A consistent scorer at the LEC championships, Labrie was a member of the Huskies winning 4 x 400 relay at the 2019 indoor championships.
Another three-year member of the program, Ricker joined the track team in time for the 2018 outdoor season. A two-time recipient of the Wise Scholar-Athlete Award majoring in history, Ricker became the sixth male to clear 2.00 meters (6-6¾) indoors in the high jump at the State Indoor Championships. He has earned two All-LEC honors in the 4 x 400 relay.
Two of the most decorated athletes in the history of the program, Moody earned Division III All-American honors in the heptathlon in 2019, and Marshall was the 2018-19 Indoor Track Athlete of the Year and the 206-17 Track Rookie of the Year.
Majoring in nursing, Moody’s versatility made him a valuable member of the track program. He set the school record in January in the heptathlon scoring 5,026 points at the Bates Multi-Event Meet, and scored in three events at this winter’s LEC indoor championships. Moody is a four-time recipient of the Wise Scholar-Athlete Award.
An exercise science major, Marshall is a multi-time LEC champion winning six individual titles and two more as a member of a 4 x 400 relay. He participated at the NCAA National Championships outdoors in 2018 (110-meter hurdles) and indoors in 2019 (60-meter hurdles and 200 meters). A two-time Wise Scholar-Athlete Award winner, Marshall currently holds six (five indoor and one outdoor) school records.
The Little East Conference previously recognized baseball (April 6), softball (April 13), men’s lacrosse (April 20), women’s lacrosse (April 27), and men’s tennis (May 4) seniors. Women’s track and field will be honored next week.
