Verde Named CAC Women's Track & Field Athlete of the Week

YORK, PA - York sophomore Megan Verde (Toms River, N.J./Toms River North) was named the Capital Athletic Conference Women's Track & Field Athlete of the Week on March 16th.

Verde led the Spartans in their six-team spring invitational despite very windy and rainy conditions in York last Saturday. Verde started her day off with a 1st place finish in the high jump, clearing the bar at 1.37 meters. She then took a second place finish in the long jump with a 4.13-meter leap. All very impressive with the slippery conditions.

Verde and the Spartans will travel to Lebanon Valley on Friday for the LVC Invitational.
