Monmouth Shines at Annual Invitational

Aside from the Annual XC Kickoff, Monmouth’s Cross Country program hosts an additional annual meet early in the season. After giving an exceptional performance at the XC-Kickoff at Thompson Park two weeks ago, the Hawks performed admirably once again at the Monmouth Invitational on Sept. 20. This second invitational is held at the challenging course of Holmdel Park in Holmdel, NJ. The hilly course is feared by high school and collegian runners alike for its signature, 180 meter steep incline known as “the bowl.”


Cross Country Begins with Annual MU Kick-Off

The men’s and women’s cross country teams started off their season with a bang, both winning their first meet, the Monmouth XC Kick-Off on Saturday, Aug. 30. This annual competition is hosted by Monmouth as the first meet of the season. Held at Thompson Park in Lincroft, NJ, the meet allowed schools to gauge their performances for the future, while incorporating some friendly competition in the process.


Track and Field Post Strong Finishes at ECAC/IC4A

The men and women’s track and field teams both had record finishes in the ECAC/IC4A Championships at Boston University this past weekend. The men placed fifth out of 100 teams and the women placed eighth out of 86 teams. These are the highest finishes at the ECAC/IC4As by both MU’s men and women in program history, marking a major milestone for the athletes, and the program.


Track and Field Wins First MAAC Title

The men’s and women’s track and field squads finished their first season in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) by winning the MAAC Indoor Track & Field Championship on Friday, Feb. 21. The championship meet was held at the New York Armory, a familiar territory for the Hawks this season, which is located in Manhattan, NY. The men’s side scored an overall 169 points while the women scored 215.50 points during the meet.


Track and Field Continue Hot Streak

Despite the challenging weather over the past two weeks, MU’s Indoor Track & Field squads have not floundered and have continued to produce impressive results. On Friday, Jan. 31 and Sunday, Feb. 1, the Hawks competed in a pair of meets: The Bison Open Invitational at Bucknell University and the Columbia Lion’s Invitational. Both meets were not scored on a team basis, however, both the men and the women performed exceptionally well and broke some school records in the process.
