Rider's Dentino, Elgin Honored by MAAC

LAWRENCEVILLE-Rider University sophomore Anthony Dentino and senior Megan Elgin were named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Cross Country Runners of the Week for all competition September 4-9.

Dentino (Sewell, NJ/Washington Twp.)  placed third of 43 Division I runners, covering the 5.0 mile Van Cortlandt course in 26:18 during a rain storm at the Fordham Fiasco.

"Anthony ran really well," said head coach Bob Hamer said. "The men were a little more spread out, but Anthony is off to a great start. The first two races he has done all the things we talked about him doing. Today he got out with the leaders and after the back hills it was him and six Yale runners. He stayed with most of them, and he was a little disappointed that two of them got away, but he ran a great race."

Elgin (Doylestown, PA/Central Bucks East) was sixth among 40 Division I runners, covering the 3.1 mile Van Cortlandt course in 19:24 during a rain storm at the Fordham Fiasco.

"Our game plan with Meg was to get up with the leaders and test herself and she competed admirably," Hamer said.

The Rider women placed second of four Division I teams.  "I was definitely pleased with the way the women ran," Hamer said.

The men placed third of six Division I teams.

The Broncs compete again September 28 at Lehigh University's Paul Short Run.
