Pierre’s Record Performance Earns Track Athlete of the Week Honors

MACON, Ga.—JU senior Joane Pierre was named the Atlantic Sun Track Athlete of the Week after her record setting performance in the 1500m over the weekend. It is the second straight week that a Dolphin has received the honor.

Pierre shattered the JU school record in the 1500m by nearly six seconds when she ran a time of 4:18.27 at the FSU Seminole Invitational on Saturday.  Her time leads the conference and ranks ninth in the nation this season. 

The Dolphins return to action this weekend when they travel Gainesville, Fla. for the second time in the last three weeks to take part in the Tom Jones Invitational.
