SUNYAC’s were fantastic this season. Nichole and Danielle were seconds away from All SUNYAC honors with their 17th and 19th place overall finishes. Our fifth place overall team finish was our best to date and bodes well for the future of our program. Kudos to (freshman) Amanda Wolfer, (Sophomore) Christina Bartonicek and (freshman) Andrea Prusik for a strong 3-4-5 finish.
The Regional meet was no less exciting with Danielle having the best performance of her career in her final collegiate meet. She set the school record in a personal best time of 23:24.6 for (6K) and finished 37th overall, two place shy of All Region and Academic All American. Nichole, Christina, Sara and Amanda ran strong enough to move us into 13th overall.
We had 8 top 10 all time performances posted this season. On the 5k chart Nichole W. moved into the #4 spot with a time of 19:39. Christina B. moved into the #6 spot with a time of 19:45 and Aubrey Larezza moved into the #10 spot with a time of 20:17. In the 6k distance Danielle set a new school record of 23.24. Nichole W. moved into the #2 slot with a time of 23:33. Christina B. moved into the #4 slot with a time of 24:03, Theresa Park moved into the #5 slot with a time of 24:24 and Aubrey LaRezza ran a time of 24:53 moving her into the #9 spot overall.
Our Women have clearly set a high standard for future teams to live up to. Their commitment and dedication to their team is impressive. I’m looking forward to our non-traditional season this spring to see what kind of really fast times we can set on the track. If this fall is any indication of what the future will bring, NPXC fans have alot to look forward to in 2011.
