New life for the men's cross-country team
It is a new year and a new beginning for men's cross-country. Hadara Katarski has assumed the position as the new head coach after just one year as the assistant coach at Niagara University and after years of experience at the Division III level.
The team returns six runners from last year, including two seniors in Ryan Kolano and Alex Schmitt. With only six returning members, the men's team has welcomed five new recruits.
The first race of the season saw Niagara University finish with the bronze at the Little Three Championship in St. Bonaventure.
Niagara University next competed at the University at Buffalo's Stampede Invitational, where it finished sixth overall.
Junior Sam Reedy led the way with a time of 26:13.8, earning him the 19th spot in the 8k.
Men's cross-country will continue its season on October 6 at the Slippery Rock Invitational.
Look for such a young squad to only improve and finish better both individually and collectively.
