Pierre, the conference preseason Runner of the Year, broke the JU 6K record with a time of 21:10.8 for second overall at the meet. Pierre's time passed former Dolphin Elsa Goshu who ran a 21:34 at the NCAA Regional in 2009.
“Joane had a really nice run against some good competition,” JU head coach Ron Grigg said. “We hope this is the first step in a very successful season.”
Pierre earns the weekly honor for the third time in her career. She won the honor last season after posting the second fastest JU 6K time (21:47.32) to win the UCF Attack Challenge.
The Dolphins will be at the UCF Attack Challenge for the second straight year Friday in Orlando.
