HAVERFORD, Pa. – Haverford senior Graham Peet has been named the Centennial Conference Track Athlete of the Week after winning the 10,000 meters at the Danny Curran Invitational at Widener on Friday night.
Peet notched a great start to the outdoor season with a time of 30:06.59. The time is a new career-best and is the seventh-best individual mark in Haverford program history. The Vashon, Wash. native's time ranks atop the Centennial Conference and is also the fourth-fastest time of the season thus far in Division III.
Already one of the most decorated track athletes in program history, Peet picks up his second career Track Athlete of the Week honor. An All-America finisher in the steeplechase last season after finishing third at the national meet, Peet is coming off an indoor campaign in which he was named First-team All-Centennial Conference in both the 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters after taking home gold in the indoor distance double. Peet is also a reigning All-American in cross country and was the program's 12th student-athlete to qualify for the NCAA Championships in each of his four seasons of eligbility.
Peet and the Fords return to action at the West Chester Invitational on Saturday. Action on the track is slated to begin at 11 a.m.
