Track standout Garn named America East Most Outstanding
Junior middle distance runner Jesse Garn and freshman sprinter Jon Alkins have both been honored by the America East Conference for their performances at the recent indoor track championships. Garn was named the men’s Most Outstanding Track Performer of the meet while Alkins was named the meet’s top men’s rookie. In addition, the Bearcats also had the men’s Co-Coaching Staff of the Year.
Garn won the 1000 and anchored the winning distance medley relay during the indoor conference meet, which was held Feb. 23-24 at the New York City Armory. He is the third Bearcat in the last five years to earn the men’s top indoor award. Cazal Arnett was honored in 2010 and Erik van Ingen was the recipient in 2011.
