Westwood, MA --- The WPI women's track & field 4x100m has been selected as the NEWMAC Relay of the Week.
The team of freshman Katherine Pawlak (Westford, MA), senior Michelle Gencorelli (Andover, MA), sophomore Katy Nippert (Salem, NH) and freshman Janelle Knight (Santa Barbara, CA) handed in the 23rd-ranked, and NEWMAC-best, 4x100-meter relay time of 48.81 this past weekend at the UMass Minuteman Invitational. Gencorelli was honored as part of a 4x100m back in 2016 while Nippert was a member of last year's award-winning 4x100m. Pawlak, meanwhile, was previously recognized as an individual and as part of a relay as a member of the swimming & diving team.
MIT's Jenna Melanson (Woodland, WA) and Lucy Lee (Potomac, MD) were named as the conference's track and field athlete of the week, respectively.
WPI travels to the Conn. College Silfen Invitational & Multi-Event Meet this weekend, which begins with the Elite Distance and multis on Friday.
