Jamie Connelly, Track and Field

Every week throughout the Converse Athletics' season, the Converse Athletic Department will name a Valkyrie of the Week for their performance in their respective sport.

Valkyrie of the Week honors goes to Jamie Connelly of the Converse Indoor Track and Field Team. 

Connelly turned in another great effort as she ran a lifetime personal record of 19:40.24 in the 5k race as well as setting a new school record, breaking her own mark by more than a minute. Her time merged her into the top-15 overall for 5k performances and was good enough to defeat every runner within Conference Carolinas along with several teams of the Division I level.
