BUFFALO WILD WING STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – Marion Joly-Testault, Women’s Track

Iona College Track junior Marion Joly-Testault was named the Buffalo Wild Wings Student-Athlete of the Week after being named the MAAC Outdoor Track Championships Most Outstanding Performer.

Joly-Testault won the 5,000- and 10,000-meter individual titles. Joly-Testualt joined senior Heidi Gregson, sophomore Kirsten Stewart, freshman Regina Neumeyer and the 4x800-meter relay squad as event winners at the meet.

Joly-Testault set a MAAC Championship record Friday night in the 10k event with her time of 35:33.18. She broke former Gael standout Salome Kosgei's time of 36:06.99 set in 2007 by more than 39 seconds. She finished more than a minute a head of Marist's Addie DiFrancesco to take the title.

In the 5k, Joly-Testualt earned her sixth career MAAC Championship and defended her 5000-meter outdoor crown for the third straight year with her time of 16:41.31. She topped teammate Hollie Rolwand (16:48.45) by eight seconds. Joly-Testault's time was an outdoor personal best for the junior and less than a second off of Kosgei's MAAC Championship record time (16:40.68, 2007).
