The Tech’s Athlete of the Week: Amy R. Magnuson ’10

Amy R. Magnuson ’10 added yet another record breaking performance to her impressive season at the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships, re-setting the Institute record in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 8.04 seconds.

Her time was well under her personal best of 8.15 seconds, set in the preliminaries, and is the second fastest time in the country this season, bested only by Sumer Rohrs against whom she competed on Saturday.

Magnuson also set an Institute record in the long jump with a distance of 17’6”.

Coming off her great showing, Magnuson is set to compete in the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend at Ohio Northern University.
