    Cross Country to Host America East Championships

    As a cool, crisp air descends upon the Stony Brook campus, Coach Andrew Ronan’s Cross Country runners are preparing for the track meet that will be the fruition of all their hard work during the season. This Saturday, Stony Brook plays host to the American East Cross Country Championships, and everyone has but one goal on their mind: winning, at any cost, come rain or shine.

    In preparing for this weekend’s meet, sophomore Alex Felce turned in his career-best performance that earned him both the America East and ECAC Cross Country Performer of the Week following his first career victory over the weekend against CCSU.

    Felce finished the men’s 5K race in 15:01, two seconds ahead of the rest of the field. Coach Ronan called this meet the ‘final tune-up before the real deal, and it went very well.’ The sophomore’s win inspired the team to a victory at the Central Connecticut Mini Meet where they beat a nine-team field that included UConn, UNH, and Hartford.

    The Seawolves men’s and women’s teams return to action on Saturday when they will host the 2007 America East Cross Country Championships here. Coach Ronan added, ‘It is the first time that we are hosting, and we are very excited about that, because we feel both teams, the men and women, have a real opportunity to win the conference titles for the first time.’

    The meet will be held at the Stony Brook Jeridine property, off Stony Brook Road, near the South P lot. Come down and see the Men’s and Women’s teams have a chance to take home the championships and root for the home team.
