SOUTH EASTON, MA – Freshman Anthony Arcari (Tewksbury, Mass.) of the Merrimack men's track and field team has been named Northeast-10 Conference men's track Rookie of the Week for his efforts this past weekend at the Snowflake Classic held at Tufts University.
Arcari was a part of the Warriors 4x100 meter relay team that took home a first place finish at the Snowflake Classic in a time of 44.31 seconds. Arcari also qualified for the finals in the 100 meter dash competition with a time of 11.47 seconds in the preliminary round. In the finals, Arcari improved on his time and took home the third place finish in a time of 11.28 seconds, setting a personal best mark in the event in the process.
Arcari is the second member of the Merrimack track and field team to win a weekly award this season as Briana Devereaux (Londonderry, NH) of the women's team was honored as co-athlete of the week last week.
The Warriors track and field team will compete once again this Saturday at the George Davis Invite.
