Piker Named NEWMAC and CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week

NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Freshman Caitlin Piker has been named both the NEWMAC Women's Field Athlete of the Week and CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week as she broke her own school record in the javelin.

Piker, who just last week set a school record with a throw of 121 feet, one inch, shattered her mark this week with a throw of 132 feet, three inches. In doing so, she won the event and the Connecticut native is now ranked 17th in Division III in the javelin.

The Bears are back in action this weekend at the Larry Ellis Invitational at Princeton.
