WALTHAM, Mass. – Brandeis University senior Emily Bryson of Quincy, Massachusetts, has been tabbed as the University Athletic Association (UAA) Women's Track Athlete of the Week for the week ending March 31st.

Bryson was honored for the ninth time with a UAA Athlete of the Week honor in 2018-19 and the 22nd time in her career overall, combining cross country, indoor track and outdoor track. She was recognized for her performance at the Raleigh Relays at North Carolina State on Friday, March 29th. Bryson turned in a personal record and Division III's fastest time of this season in the 1,500-meter run with a mark of 4:28.65. Emily's time is the fastest in D3 by 1.34 seconds.
