Gerald Arneaud Earns Little East Conference Honor

Feb. 23, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Aa member of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's track and field team has been honored by the Little East Conference for the first time.

Freshman Gerald Arneaud (Dorchester, MA/Newton South HS) has been named Little East Conference Men's Rookie Track Athlete of the Week.

Arneaud finished 15th at 400 meters at Saturday's New England Division III Championships, posting a time of 52.12 seconds. He also ran the anchor leg of the 4 x 400 meter relay team in 53 seconds to help the Corsairs finish 16th in 3:35.34.

"We're certainly pleased to see Gerald receive this award," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "It's a culmination of his freshman year, adjusting to college life. As a freshman, he is running his best towards the latter part of the season. I think we'll hear a lot more from Gerald as his career unfolds."

UMass Dartmouth will return to action this weekend at the Open New England Championships.
