The second installment of the USJ Women's Athlete of the Week goes to senior Mia Tompkins (Meriden, Conn.) from Women's Cross Country. Tompkins picked up right where she left off from the 2017 cross country season and led the Blue Jays at the Trinity College Bantam XC Invitational on Saturday at Wickham Park. The veteran paced USJ and posted a ninth-place finish out of 63 runners with a finishing 5K time of 20:31.3 on an average 6:37 mile pace. She also picked up her second career GNAC Women's Runner of the Week honor as announced by the league's front office on Monday afternoon.
The USJ women's cross country team returns back to action next on Saturday, September 15th at the UMass Dartmouth Invitational beginning at approximately 12:00 p.m.
