Fortna Grabs Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week Honors

KINGSTON, R.I. - The Atlantic 10 announced its conference runners of the week Tuesday morning, and Rock Fortna once again claimed Rookie of the Week honors.

Competing at the 2017 New England Championship, he finished 54th overall and three seconds behind the Rams pacesetter, Alec Font, with a time of 26:26. For Fortna, it is the second consecutive week he has been honored by the conference, he received the honor two weeks ago for his performance at the Coast-to-Coast Battle in Beantown. 

Fortna and the Rams return to action this Friday as Rhode Island heads to Goddard Park for Brown University's Rothenberg Run.
