Fall sports are now underway with cross country competing in its first races of the fall this past weekend. Weekly honors were awarded to (pictured, left-to-right) Mike Myers from Southern Virginia men's cross country and Monica Lannen from Christopher Newport women's cross country.
Coming off its third-straight Capital Athletic Conference title and the conference's highest-ever team placing at the NCAA National Championships, Christopher Newport was selected as the preseason favorite in the 2018 CAC Men's Cross Country Preseason Poll. The Captains received six first-place votes and 48 points to earn top billing in a vote among the conference head coaches.
St. Mary's College of Maryland Associate Director for Internal Operations Jim Cranmer announced Monday the hiring of Michael Gentile as the next head coach of the St. Mary's men's and women's cross country programs. Gentile, who will also serve as the assistant director for the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center (MPOBARC), will begin his duties on Monday, August 6.
