Scalesse Named Co-Athlete of the Year

NEW LONDON, Conn.-Coast Guard senior Adam Scalesse has been named 2014 New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference Track Co-Athlete of the Year as announced by the conference. Scalesse shared NEWMAC Co-Athlete of the Year honors with States Lee of MIT.

Scalesse won both the 110 hurdles and 400 hurdles at last weekend's NEWMAC Championships. He has already qualified for the Division III National Championships in both events where he looks to add to his impressive trophy case as he's won All-America honors five times already in his career.

Scalesse has posted the second-fastest time in the nation in the 110 hurdles with a best mark of 14.15 seconds while his top time of 53.17 seconds in the 400 hurdles is good for sixth nationally.

The Academy swept both the NEWMAC women's and men's track and field Sportsmanship Awards.
