College Outdoor Track and Field – Day One
Rider at 137th IC4A/30th ECAC Championships

PRINCETON—Several members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion Rider University men’s and women’s track and field teams are competing Friday through Sunday at the 137th IC4A and 30th Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) championships, hosted by Princeton University.

For the Rider men in IC4A competition on Friday, sophomore Anthony Dentino (Sewell/Washington Twp.) was 15th in the 10,000 meter run (31:26.62).

Dentino won MAAC silver this past weekend in the 10,000 with a time of 31:55.27.

Last season as a Rider rookie, Dentino was seventh in the IC4A 10,000 meter race with a personal best 30:22.60, earning All-East honors.

For the Bronc women in ECAC competition on Friday, senior Nicole Tassello (Suffern, N.Y./Suffern) was 25th in the 10,000 meter run (38:14.72).

“We knew both would be very tired from the races over the last 15 days,” said head coach Bob Hamer who was named both the MAAC Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Coach of the Year.  “We knew it would be tough but it was definitely worth it for them with what the team was able to achieve with the championship last week.  Hopefully on Saturday, we can have a stronger day.”

This past weekend, Tassello was fourth in the MAAC in the 10,000 with a time of 39:58.30.

Last season as a junior, Tassello set a Rider record in the 10,000, running 37:08.29, finishing 19th at ECACs and she broke the Rider record again this season with a time of 36:50.20 at the Penn Relays, finishing 20th.

Rider opens on Saturday with the men’s 4x100 trials.
