Central Connecticut women's indoor track and field freshman Ashley Dana was named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week, it was announced Tuesday by the league's front office.
Dana dialed up a collegiate best in the 800m run at the Boston University David Hemery Valentine Invitational. In her final appearance prior to the NEC Indoor Championships, the first-year Blue Devil crossed the line in 2:15.85 at BU. The time, which ranked amongst the top one-third of the 261 entrants at the meet, moved Dana up to fifth place overall on the NEC leader board.
