Kudos to Seabrook’s Ashante Little, a senior on the Wheaton track and field team, who was named the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Track Athlete of the Year. A two-time NCAA champion in the 400 meter dash, Little was also named Wheaton’s Outstanding Female Athlete Monday at the College’s annual awards ceremony. She set a Division III record when she won the 400 meter hurdles in 58.56 seconds at the NEWMAC Championship, besting the previous mark of 58.99 set by Carolyn Ross of Augsburg in 1989…Salem State sophomore slugger Richard Fecteau (Newbury) also enjoyed a plaudit-filled week. He was named the MASCAC Player of the Year and the recipient of the President’s Cup, presented to the outstanding male and female athletes at Salem State. Fecteau is hitting .385 with 45 runs and 28 RBI entering the MASCAC Tournament this weekend.
