Tyler Buck Honored By Little East Conference

Jan. 19, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Senior Tyler Buck (Valley Center, CA/Valley Center HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's track and field team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Buck has been named Little East Conference co-Men's Track Athlete of the Week.

Buck made his spring semester debut at the Sorlien Invitational at the University of Rhode Island on Saturday, finishing fourth at 800 meters in 1:59.33. The performance qualified him for the New England Division III Championships.

"I'm very proud of Tyler," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "He's worked very hard to get to this point, and he's just beginning to scratch the surface of where he's going to be before the season is over. For the first race back from break, it was a good start for the indoor season."

UMass Dartmouth will return to action Saturday at the Springfield Invitational.
