Maxwell Named NESCAC Runner of the Week

Middlebury College women's track and field athlete Alison Maxwell (Mercer Island, Wash.) has been selected as the NESCAC Track Performer of the Week. The 2015 NCAA Indoor National Champion in the mile, Maxwell recorded a time of 4:34.51 as the top Division III finisher in the 1,500-meter run during the Larry Ellis Invitational hosted by Princeton. That time currently is the ninth-quickest mark in Division III and automatically qualifies her for the ECAC Championships next month at Springfield.

Maxwell and the rest of the Panthers will compete at the NESCAC Championships on Saturday hosted by Williams.
