Madison Perez was named Track Athlete of the Month

Dublin resident and Amador Valley High School graduate Madison Perez was named Division III North Track Athlete of the Month for December 2019 by the Eastern College Athletic Conference. Perez is a sophomore at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, New York. A biomedical engineering major, Perez competed in two track meets last month, running the 800 meters and 4x400 meters relay in both events. At the Smith College Winter Classic, she won the 800 meters, while her relay team finished second, with Perez as the anchor. The following week at the Utica College Winter Classic, Perez again captured the 800 meters. And this time, again with Perez running the anchor leg, the squad finished first. RPI won the six-school, multi-divisional meet with 188 points, outdistancing second place Westfield State (137) by 51 points.
