Central Connecticut sophomore Aaron Radden was named Northeast Conference Track Athlete of the Week on Tuesday afternoon. The Blue Devil sprinter went to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Saturday in search of elite competition. Radden posted a pair of top-10 finishes in at the LSU Alumni Gold Meet.
Competing in the 100 and 200 meter events Radden posted the NEC's top times of the season for both events. In the 100 meter Radden posted a 10.50 second performance that earned him a sixth place finish. His time passed the NEC's defending 100 meter champion for the fastest time of the 2011 season.
In the 200 meter, Radden surpassed his own top performance of the season with a 21.09 second mark. That time earned him a third place finish in the event. Radden is a two-time NEC Indoor Champion in the 200 meter.
Radden's times in both events are the fastest for an NEC sprinter since 2008.
Radden and the Blue Devils will be in action again this weekend this weekend at the historic Penn Relays.
