Buffalo, NY - With a first place finish at the Meghan Memorial this past Saturday, junior Rachel Luczak (Lancaster, NY/Immaculata) has been named AMCC Runner of the Week.
Rachel finished the Meghan Memorial with a time of 22:30 on Saturday with her time was over a minute better than the next runner. With her top time, the women finished first overall with a team score of 28 which was 15 points better than the next place team.
Over the last four races, Rachel has been the top runner for the women and has been one of the top runners for the women throughout her career as a Spartan. In each of her three seasons with the women, she has finished first or second in every race she has run. Her consistency has made her one of the best runners in the AMCC.
Saturday's result was no fluke for the junior as during her freshman season, Rachel finished second overall at the Meghan Memorial and was the team's top runner that day. Throughout her entire freshman season, Luczak finished as the top or second best D'Youville runner. As a sophomore last year, she again finished first or second in every race that she ran and she was named MVP her freshman season.
At Immaculata Academy, Rachel ran cross country for four years while also running indoor track and field for three years. For four additional years, Luczak ran four years of outdoor track and field.
Rachel is an Occupational Therapy major at D'Youville and the daughter of Rich and Janet Luczak.
