Katie Nugent of the Track and Field team has been tabbed as the WPI Female Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sunday, April 3.  The freshman from Huntington, N.Y. made her collegiate track and field debut a memorable one by claiming a victory in the 400-meter dash (1:00.33) and teaming with Lea Strangio, Julie Tevenan, and Maggie LaRoche to win the 4×400-meter relay (4:08.45) as the Engineers captured the team championship at the Coast Guard Invitational on Saturday afternoon.  Katie’s performance in the 400 meters qualifies her for the New England Division III Championships in early May.
