Broncs Honored by MAAC
At the 14-team Fordham Fiasco, held at Van Cortlandt Park on Saturday, Elgin (Doylestown, PA/Central Bucks East) placed 20th overall among the 117 runners, covering the 3.1 mile course in 19:02.38.
"Meg has been racing very well this season," said head coach Bob Hamer. "She had a real good summer of training and the hard work is paying off. The plan is to use these first two meets as a springboard to a successful season. She is racing with a lot of confidence right now. "
"I felt really good," said Elgin, a MAAC All-Academic team member last year. "This course (Van Cortlandt) has a lot of hills in it and is challenging. I'm in better shape this year so today was a little different than running here in the past."
Last week Elgin enjoyed her finest collegiate race to date, finishing second overall. "That was a real confidence boast for me," Elgin said.
Dentino (Sewell, NJ/Washington Twp.) finished first among the Broncs for the second time in as many collegiate races, 30th overall among the 105 runners, covering the five mile course in 26:43.41.
"Anthony is a very talented freshman who has put in the miles in high school and this summer in preparation for the season," Hamer said. "He has been racing very well so far and I am excited to watch him develop during the remainder of the season."
In the season opener, Dentino finished first overall in a race with Saint Joseph's and The College of new Jersey.
The Broncs will return to Van Cortlandt Park for the MAAC Championships October 28.
Rider will compete at Lehigh's Paul Short Run on September 30.
