ECAC Honors DeBaise as Division III New England Field Athlete of the Week

CASTLETON, Vt. – Brielle DeBaise of the Castleton women's track and field team continues to be lauded for her performances last week, as she was named Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) New England Field Athlete of the Week, announced Wednesday by the league office. 

DeBaise helped lead her team to a third place finish in the North Atlantic Conference Championship with top-10 finishes in four different events. The senior captured first place in the discus with a 34.03-meter throw, coming just off the distance of her personal best mark. She qualified for Division III New England and ECAC Championships in the hammer throw after shattering her previous program record with a heave of 42.60 meters to place second overall. DeBaise also took fifth in the javelin with a throw of 26.82 meters, and rounded out her events with a seventh-place throw of 9.98 meters in the shot put.

DeBaise will join teammate Carley Patch as Castleton throwers to compete in the upcoming regional championships this weekend at Williams College. To view the full ECAC weekly release, click here
