Pompei Receives A-10 Rookie Performer Of The Week Honors
Jan. 25, 2010
AMHERST, Mass. - After her outstanding performance at the Great Dane Invitational, Nicole Pompei was named the Atlantic 10 Rookie Performer of the Week. Pompei won the pole vault and set a UMass top five all-time mark for the second consecutive meet. Her mark of 11-11.75 officially ranks third all-time at UMass in the event. In only her second collegiate meet, Pompei garnered 10 points for the Minutewomen en route to qualifying for the ECAC Championships in March.
Pompei has certainly had a fast start to her career at UMass. The true freshman won the pole vault two weeks ago at the BU Quad Meet and qualified for the New England Championships. She entered the record books with the fourth best mark all-time at UMass by posting a height of 11-05.75.
Pompei will look to continue her success this Friday when the Minutewomen head to Roxbury, Mass. for the Reebok Boston Indoor Games. The meet will get underway at 3:30 p.m.
