LANCASTER, Pa. – Jasmine Scott (Derwood, Md./Bullis), a freshman on the McDaniel women's indoor track and field team, has been named the Centennial Conference (CC) Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 17-23.

Scott, a sprinter, led the Green Terror at the Orange & Maroon Classic hosted by Susquehanna on Sunday.

In the 55 meters, Scott recorded the top time in the five preliminary heats with a time of 7.68 seconds before bettering that by 0.10 seconds in the finals to win the even by 0.22 seconds.

Scott teamed with Katie Corson, Jennifer Garnett and Sarah Byron to turn in the eighth-fastest 4x200-meter relay, combining to win the race in a time of 1:52.90.

The Green Terror returns to action at the Patriot Games hosted by George Mason on Saturday.
