PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — A Portsmouth native has joined the leadership of the Massachusetts Maritime women’s cross country team as it heads to the Massachusetts Collegiate Athletic Conference this fall.
Massachusetts Maritime sophomore Jill Ethier of Portsmouth has joined the leadership team as co-captain, serving with senior Kaylene Murphy of Randolph, Mass.
According to Head Coach Elizabeth Sullivan, the two co-captains are “extremely dedicated leaders who are committed to sustained excellence in competition and in the Maritime community.
“They have been incredibly positive role models for their teammates through their inspiring work ethic, and they will both continue to guide our program on a successful course.”
Ethier recorded a top 20 performance for Sullivan’s squad in the Fuller Invitational, as she and Murphy helped Massachusetts Maritime post four top eight performances in team competition last fall.
The Buccaneers begin their new season on Saturday, Sept. 9, by heading to Biddeford, Maine, to compete at the University of New England Invitational.
