Coquitlam middle-distance runner Addy Townsend has been named the women’s track athlete of the week in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference for the second consecutive week.
Townsend, a senior at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, secured the fastest Div. 2 time in the 800m women’s event at the John Thomas Terrier Classic indoor meet in Boston, Mass., last week.
She completed the race in 2:08.47, good enough for 12th overall. She also ran the anchor leg in SFU’s winning distance medley relay race.
A week ago, Townsend put up the third-best time among Div. 2 runners at the University of Washington Indoor Preview, placing eighth in the one-mile race at 4:49.03, while recording a provisional NCAA standard time.
