Cross Country's Elgin, Swimming's Molloy

LAWRENCEVILLE--Megan Elgin of the cross country team and Brian Molloy of the swimming & diving team were named the Rider University Athletes of the Month for November.

Elgin, a senior from Doylestown, Pa. (Central Bucks East) concluded the cross country season by placing a Rider-best 35th at the NCAA Mid Atlantic Regional, breaking the Rider record for the Penn State course by 40 seconds (21:44.45).

She placed 10th overall at the ECAC Championships to become Rider's first All-East cross country runner from the women's program, breaking the Rider record for the Van Cortlandt Park course by 21 seconds.

Molloy, a senior from Toms River, NJ (Toms River East), was twice the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week in November, as the Broncs defeated La Salle and MAAC-rival Marist.  Against Marist Molloy won four events and he won three events against La Salle.

Earlier this year Molloy broke the oldest record in the Coppola Pool, the 100 free that stood since 1987.

Molloy is currently the top ranked swimmer in the MAAC in four events.
