CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – It's been an impressive start to her first collegiate outdoor track season for American University freshman Adriana Hooks.
Running back in her hometown of Williamsburg, Va., Hooks posted a mark in the women's 5,000-meter run at the Colonial Relays that earned her the selection as the M-F Athletic Patriot League Female Rookie of the Week.
Hooks ran 17:10.46 at the Colonial Relays, placing 14th in the seeded section of the 5K. In addition to a qualifying mark for the ECAC Outdoor Championships in May, her time was the fifth-best all-time at American University.
Hooks has shown some versatility in her successful outdoor season, winning the 3,000 at the Coastal Carolina Invitational and the 1,500 at the Maryland Invitational.
American will compete this weekend at the Mason Spring Invitational at George Mason University.
