Dr. Brennan O’Donnell is the 19th president of Manhattan College, having assumed the responsibilities of the position July 1, 2009. Dr. O’Donnell comes to Manhattan from Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham University’s oldest and largest school. As dean of Fordham College, he was the chief academic officer of a College of Arts and Sciences enrolling about 3,200 students under a faculty of more than 200. Before coming to New York, Dr. O’Donnell spent 17 years at Loyola College in Maryland (now Loyola University Maryland), where he served as a professor of English and, from 1999-2004, as director of the university-wide Honors Program. An active scholar, his teaching and research interests focus mainly upon poetry, especially of the British Romantic period, and on religion and literature, particularly contemporary American Catholic writers. He has authored two books on the poetry of William Wordsworth and co-edited The Work of Andre Dubus, a collection of essays published as a double issue of Religion and the Arts. In addition, Dr. O’Donnell has published articles, essays and reviews in some of the leading journals in his field. At Manhattan, he will continue to hold a faculty appointment, as he had at Fordham and Loyola, as professor of English. As the first president of the College not to be a member of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, Dr. O’Donnell is treading new ground at Manhattan College. He has experience in such transitions, however, as he was also the first layperson to serve as dean of Fordham College at Rose Hill. His publications and

6

2011 • MANHATTAN COLLEGE TRACK & FIELD

lectures demonstrate a keen engagement in issues of faith and education, specifically Catholic higher education. From 1994–2000, he served as editor of the national magazine Conversations on Jesuit Higher Education, and he was a member of the National Seminar on Jesuit Higher Education from 1993–2000. In addition, he has served as a board member for the Lilly Fellows Program and for Collegium, a consortium of Catholic universities that strives to strengthen faculty understanding of and participation in the mission of Catholic higher education. A native of Pennsylvania’s Wyoming Valley, Dr. O’Donnell earned his B.A. with highest distinction and Honors in English at The Pennsylvania State University in 1981, where he was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. He earned an M.A. and a Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in English and American Literature and Language. He is the recipient of numerous fellowships, grants, awards and honors. Dr. O’Donnell is married to Angela O’Donnell (formerly Alaimo), a poet and writer who teaches at Fordham, where she serves as associate director of the Francis and Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies. The couple has three sons: Charles (a graduate of Saint John’s University, Minnesota, and a teacher in the St. Paul, Minnesota, public schools), Patrick (a 2009 graduate of Columbia University, currently pursuing graduate studies in philosophy in Leuven, Belgium), and Will (a senior English major at Fordham).


A 1968 graduate of Manhattan College, Byrnes enters his 23rd year as director of athletics. Since his arrival back to Riverdale in May of 1988, Byrnes has presided over a renaissance period in Manhattan College athletics. During his tenure, the men’s and women’s basketball programs have earned eight NCAA Tournament bids (four women, four men). Additionally, the Jaspers have appeared in five postseason and preseason National Invitational Tournaments (NIT). Women’s soccer and men’s and women’s lacrosse began competition at the Division I level under Byrnes, and 14 different teams have won conference championships-men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s indoor track, men’s and women’s outdoor track, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s lacrosse, volleyball, men’s tennis, softball and baseball. In addition, to date, 26 student-athletes have received All-America honors for both athletic and academic achievements. Before returning to Manhattan, Byrnes spent 13 years with the Morrison-Knudsen Company, one of the largest engineering and construction firms in the nation. A native of Garrison, New York, Byrnes earned his undergraduate degree in physical education with a minor in biology. He also holds an M.B.A. from City University in Seattle, Washington. As an undergraduate, Byrnes was a member of the Jaspers’ club football team. Byrnes served as team captain and played both defensive tackle and

offensive end. He spent one season as an assistant coach and helped guide Manhattan to a 6-2 overall record in 1969. Upon graduation, Byrnes began a teaching and coaching career at Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington, New Jersey. He also served as the school’s director of athletics from 1970-73. Under his leadership, Queen of Peace registered state tournament appearances in baseball and basketball, while also capturing the Parochial “B” State Championship in football (1972). In addition to his responsibilities at Manhattan, Byrnes served two stints (1997-99, 2004-06) as president of the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Basketball Association, at one time the sponsoring body of the NIT. He also served on the NCAA Championship Committee in 1999-2000. He is currently the chair of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Men’s Basketball Committee and the Committee on Athletic Administration, as well as a member of the ECAC Officials Negotiating Committee. In recognition of his years of outstanding contributions to Jasper athletics, Byrnes was inducted into the Manhattan College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004. Byrnes resides in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, along with his wife, Rosemary. He is the father of five children: Bob, Carolyn (Manhattan ’97), Brian (Manhattan ’99), Darren and Brigid.

METRO ATLANTIC ATHLETIC CONFERENCE With 10 institutions strongly bound by the sound principles of quality and integrity in academics and excellence in athletics, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference is in its 30th year of competition during the 2010-2011 academic year. The MAAC was founded in 1980 by six charter members: the U.S. Military Academy, Fairfield University, Fordham University, Iona College, Manhattan College and Saint Peter’s College. Competition followed one year later in the fall of 1981 with members competing in the sports of men’s cross country and men’s soccer. On January 2, 1982, Army traveled to Iona for the first MAAC men’s basketball game and the MAAC story had begun. Today, Conference members include: Canisius College, Fairfield University, Iona College, Loyola University Maryland, Manhattan College, Marist College, Niagara University, Rider University, Saint Peter’s College, and Siena College. In addition, associate members include the University of Detroit Mercy, Jacksonville University and Virginia Military Institute in men’s lacrosse. St. Francis (N.Y.) College, Villanova University and Wagner College are all associate members of the MAAC Women’s Water Polo League. Drake University, Robert Morris University and Sacred Heart University compete in women’s rowing, while the University at Albany, Boston University and the University of Hartford began competition in women’s golf in the spring of 2010. The MAAC will support 24 sports and championships during the 2010-2011 academic year. The MAAC Basketball Championships return to the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Conn. for 2011, with Springfield’s MassMutual Center preparing to host the 2012-2014 championships. By having an excellent working relationship with various facilities, the MAAC has been able to attract a number of NCAA Championship events. Most recently, the MAAC, Canisius College and Niagara University successfully hosted the 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship First and Second Rounds at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York. All three parties hosted the event in 2004 and 2007. The MAAC and Rider University co-hosted the 2009 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Regional at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, N.J., after recording the third highest attendance figure for the women’s championship with the First and Second Rounds in 2006. The MAAC and Rider will work together to co-host the 2011 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa.

MAAC ASSOCIATE SPORTS

In June of 1995, the MAAC continued to develop opportunities for student-athletes as the conference announced the formation of the MAAC Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Leagues. The men’s league began competition in the spring of 1996, while the women’s league commenced in the spring of 1997. The men’s league consists of four MAAC schools -- Canisius, Manhattan, Marist, and Siena – and three associate members – Detroit Mercy, Jacksonville and Virginia Military Institute. The women’s league consists of MAAC institutions Canisius, Fairfield, Iona, Manhattan, Marist, Niagara and Siena. In 2002, the MAAC added the MAAC Women’s Water Polo League. The league is made up of three MAAC schools – Iona, Marist and Siena – as well as three associate members, St. Francis (N.Y.), Villanova and Wagner. Sacred Heart started participating in MAAC Women’s Rowing in the

10

2011 • MANHATTAN COLLEGE TRACK & FIELD

spring of 2008. Drake University joined the league for the 2010 MAAC Championship, while Robert Morris will begin competition in the spring of 2011. In the summer of 2009, the MAAC added three associate members – Albany, Boston University and Hartford – to women’s golf, with the programs starting competition against MAAC members Fairfield, Niagara and Siena in 2009-2010.

ACADEMICS AND ATHLETICS

The MAAC prides itself on the accomplishments of its studentathletes in the classroom, as well as on the field. Mary Beth Riley, a 1991 graduate of Canisius, was the first recipient of the NCAA Woman of the Year Award. In the fall of 1998, Erin Whalen, a member of the Iona women’s rowing team, was awarded one of the nation’s 32 Rhodes Scholarships for academic achievement and civic leadership. Jose Vargas, a Loyola student, was also awarded a Rhodes Scholarship in 1999. First-class facilities are the rule with MAAC schools, as teams regularly play in top-notch arenas, such as Madison Square Garden, the IZOD Center, HSBC Arena, Times Union Center, the Arena at Harbor Yard and the Sun National Bank Center. The other MAAC championships boast their share of outstanding locales as well, such as the Reverend Harold Ridley, S.J., Athletic Complex at Loyola, where both the men’s and women’s soccer championships will be contested in the fall of 2010, and Waterfront Park in Trenton, home of the 2011 MAAC Baseball Championship. This year, the MAAC will take its volleyball championship to Orlando, Florida, where it will conduct its post-season event at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The MAAC Men’s and Women’s Golf Championships will be held at Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course. In the past several years, a number of the MAAC schools have also enjoyed success in NCAA Championships. MAAC schools have made a total of 75 NIT appearances and 45 NCAA appearances. In addition, Fairfield represented the league last season in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament while the Fairfield women participated in the Women’s Basketball Invitational. The MAAC currently possesses 13 automatic bids to NCAA Championships in men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s lacrosse, and women’s water polo. In 2007, the Marist women’s basketball team advanced to the Sweet 16 before falling to the eventual National Champion, the University of Tennessee. Last fall, the No. 11 Iona men’s cross country team finished tied for eighth place at the NCAA Championship race, extended the Gaels’ streak to eight straight Top 10 national finishes. Canisius softball, Manhattan track, Manhattan and Marist baseball and Loyola soccer and lacrosse have also flourished on the national stage. The MAAC has also been a leader in the forefront of technology, expanding the notoriety of the league into cyberspace. In 2007, the league reached an agreement with JumpTV, Inc. to sponsor the MAAC web page. Launched in November 1999, www.maacsports.com has been a great success, providing fans with up-to-date contest results, multimedia content and an online merchandise store. The MAAC President for the 2010-2011 academic year is Rev. Jeffrey von Arx, S.J., the President of Fairfield University. The Vice-President is Dr. Eugene J. Cornacchia, Ph.D., the President of Saint Peter’s College. Ed McLaughlin, Director of Athletics at Niagara University, will chair the Committee on Athletic Administration, and Karin Torchia, Associate Athletic Director/Senior Woman Administrator at Rider University will serve as Vice Chair.

DAN MECCA

Head Coach (Montclair State ’76) • 18th Season

Now in his 18th season as head coach of the cross country and track & field programs at Manhattan College, Dan Mecca is the longest tenured head coach at Manhattan and only the fifth head coach in the track & field program’s 80-year history. Before succeeding head coach Fred Dwyer, Mecca spent seven years as the field events coach for the men’s team. He has been the only head coach since the men’s and women’s programs were combined prior to the 1993-94 season. Before then, the men’s and women’s teams had separate coaching staffs. Since taking over both programs, Mecca has maintained one of the richest track & field traditions in the East. Entering the fall of 2010, the Manhattan track & field/cross country teams have won 55 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championships, 37 Metropolitan Championships, 23 IC4A Championships and one NCAA Championship. Mecca captured the MAAC Men’s and Women’s Coach of the Year Awards for the 2010 outdoor season, making it 29 indoor or outdoor honors over the past 10 years. Mecca has continued to coach eight-time All-American Jake Freeman in the weight and hammer throws since his graduation from Manhattan in 2003. Freeman qualified for the 2009 World Championships after a second place finish in the hammer throw at the U.S. National Championships. Freeman also competed in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Trials, finishing third in 2008. He captured his first national championship in the hammer throw in 2010. Mecca has coached several athletes to the NCAA Championships, including four NCAA National Champions: Freeman (2003, indoor weight throw), Aliann Pompey (2000, 400 meters, Manhattan’s first female NCAA Champion), Michael Williams (1995, indoor 800 meters), and

12

Gary Halpin (1988, indoor weight throw). Including Freeman, Mecca has coached a total of 27 NCAA All-Americans in his 24 years at Manhattan. Other Manhattan athletes to earn All-America honors under Mecca include shot putter Milan Jotanovic, weight throwers Patrick Martin and Gerry Ryan, triple jumper David Frazier, and three-time All-American Pat McGrath (twice in the hammer throw, once in the weight throw).

In addition, the athletes Mecca has trained have participated on national teams representing the United States, Ireland, Sweden, Jamaica, Serbia and the Dominican Republic, competing in the Olympics, World Championships, Junior World Championships, World University Games, Pan American Championships and Caribbean Championships. Throughout his career, Mecca has served in various capacities for a host of national and regional track & field committees. For the NCAA, Mecca has served as a member of the Regional

2011 • MANHATTAN COLLEGE TRACK & FIELD

Cross Country Championships Games Committee and on the Indoor & Outdoor National Championships Throws Jury. For the IC4A, he has served on the Site Selection Committee, as a seeding advisor, and on the Cross Country Games Committee. And for the MAAC, he has served as the meet director for the Cross Country and Indoor Track Championships and as a member of the Outdoor Track Games Committee. A 1976 graduate of Montclair State with degrees in history and physical education, Mecca began his coaching career in 1974 at St. Mary’s High School in Rutherford, N.J. He began as a throwing coach, but eventually took over as the head coach in both cross country and track & field in 1977. Several of his athletes became state champions and established school records under his guidance. In 1984, Mecca was named head coach at William Paterson College in Wayne, N.J. While there, Mecca produced six All-Americans (three in the javelin, and one each in the shot put, discus and triple jump). Since arriving at Manhattan in 1986, Mecca has had at least one athlete qualify for the NCAA Championships every year. Mecca coached the United States squad that competed at the 1990 World Junior Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and the Irish National Team at the 1993 World University Games. He currently serves as a member of many national track & field committees. A native of Passaic, N.J., Mecca currently resides in Florida, N.Y., with his wife, Kathleen. He has three children-Christopher, who lives in New Jersey with his wife, Jamie; Patrick, who graduated Summa Cum Laude from Manhattan and is now teaching in New York City; and Caelyn, a junior Dean’s List student at Manhattan.


JOE RYAN Assistant Coach • 21st Season Joe Ryan enters his 21st season on the Manhattan College track & field coaching staff. He works primarily with the sprinters and hurdlers. In addition to his Manhattan College coaching duties, Ryan also has Olympic coaching experience, having served as the head track & field coach for Guyana at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, during which Manhattan graduate Aliann Pompey just missed making the 400 meter final while running a Guyanese national record. Ryan has also coached Pompey at the past five World Championships while serving as Guyana’s track coach. During his career at Manhattan, Ryan was named as one of the recipients of the 2003 AFLAC National Assistant Coach of the Year Award. He was one of 500 selected out of 350,000 high school and college assistant coaches across the nation. He was recognized for his expertise, longevity, contributions to the school and community, and special achievements throughout his career. After serving two years as the women’s

assistant coach and two years as the women’s head coach, Ryan has spent the last 18 years as an assistant coach in Manhattan’s combined track & field program. During his tenure as head coach of the Lady Jaspers, Ryan’s teams won seven Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championships and three Metropolitan Outdoor Championships. Ryan has had similar success as the sprints coach of the combined program. In this role, he has coached a number of college record holders and numerous All-East performers in both the IC4A and ECAC Championships. During the 2000 season, Ryan coached Manhattan College’s first female All-American, Aliann Pompey, to both the NCAA indoor 400-meter title and a national collegiate record in the 500 meters. Pompey has competed in the last three Olympic Games under the guidance of Coach Ryan. With Pompey’s participation in the 2008 Beijing Games, Ryan has had the distinction of having at least one sprinter compete in the last four Olympics, including Dine Potter ‘97, who represented Antigua and Barbuda at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Ryan started his coaching career at

Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, where he was head coach of the boys’ team for three years. His squads won two indoor New York Championships and 11 indoor and outdoor sprint titles, while a number of his athletes and relay team earned national recognition. A former co-captain of Manhattan’s men’s track & field team, Ryan was a member of the Jaspers’ outdoor record sprint medley relay team. A native of Ireland, he also competed for the Irish National Team from 1976-84, winning seven national sprint titles and setting records in the 100 meters and 200 meters. During his running career, Ryan competed in major meets throughout Europe and the former Soviet Union. Outside of track Ryan also serves as the chair of the mathematics department in the Nanuet School District. He is the longserving treasurer of the Metropolitan Track Coaches Association and also serves on the Manhattan College Hall of Fame Committee. He resides in Hartsdale, N.Y., with his wife Julienne.

KELTON CUMBERBATCH Manhattan ‘09

Kelton Cumberbatch, a 2008 Manhattan graduate, returns to Riverdale this season as a volunteer assistant coach. A three-time MAAC champion in the 400 meter hurdles, Cumberbatch will lend his expertise to the Jaspers’ corps of sprinters. Cumberbatch won the 400 meter hurdles at three consecutive MAAC Outdoor Championships (2007-09) after finishing second in 2006. He qualified for the 2009 NCAA East Regional in the event. Cumberbatch also earned medals in both the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays at the MAAC Outdoor Championships, as Manhattan won four straight team titles. Also outstanding in the classroom, Cumberbatch was named to the MAAC All-Academic Team six times. In addition, he earned a USTFCCCA All-Academic selection in 2009.

MILOS VUCKOVIC Manhattan ‘10

After exhausting his collegiate eligibility during the 2010 cross country season, Milos Vuckovic will join the coaching staff as a graduate assistant. He will work primarily with the distance runners. During his Manhattan career, Vuckovic helped the Jaspers win eight consecutive MAAC Championships (four indoors, four outdoors). He scored points in all eight championship meets and won a pair of MAAC title. Vuckovic was the 2007 MAAC champion in the 3000-meter steeplechase, and he took the gold medal in the 800 meters at the 2008 MAAC Outdoor Championships. A native of Brus, Serbia, Vuckovic won a total of five Serbian junior national championships in three different events. He is also a two-time Serbian senior national champion in the 800 meters and a three-time silver medalist in the 800 at the Bakanic Championships. Vuckovic is the European junior record-holder in the 2000-meter and 3000-meter steeplechase, and he qualified for the finals in the 2000-meter steeplechase at the 2001 World Junior Championships in Debrecen, Hungary.

MEN'S TRACK SEASON PREVIEW The Manhattan College men’s track & field team has gotten used to winning. The Jaspers have won every Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) indoor championship since 1997 and every MAAC outdoor title since 1998. With a talented group of newcomers joining a corps of established veterans, it looks like the 2010-11 season could be business as usual. Manhattan is deep in all four event areas, which is the key to success at the conference meet. Head Coach Dan Mecca, the 2010 MAAC Coach of the Year, will rely on that depth as Manhattan looks to defend its titles.

DISTANCE/CROSS COUNTRY

The distance contingent was immediately bolstered when Tobias Lundgren returned to Riverdale this fall for his junior year. Lundgren missed nearly two whole seasons while tending to family matters in Sweden. One of the top

He was the Jaspers’ top finisher five times last year, including a 20th place showing at the IC4A Championships. Junior Kevin D’Emic will also likely be among the top runners on the cross country squad. D’Emic was the second Manhattan finisher at the 2009 MAAC Cross Country Championships. He’s also a valuable mid-distance threat during the indoor and outdoor campaigns. In addition, sophomore Billy Wilkens, who comes from running-mad Oregon, continually improved during the 2009 cross country season. Talented juniors Stephen Jochem and Pat Porteus are also capable of challenging for a place among Manhattan’s scoring five in cross country. On the track, big things are expected out of incoming freshmen Mikael Rojeras and Nick Italiano. Rojeras was a bronze medalist in the 800 meters at the Swedish Junior Championships, while Italiano is a two-time high school All-American in the 4x800 meter relay. Among Manhattan’s options in the longer distances are juniors Peter Brennan, Tom Daly, John Gaffney and Joe Pluhowski, while freshmen Thomas Arias, Salim Corbin, AJ Hanifin, Brian King, Connor McCormack, Johnny Mitchell, Josh Perez, Rob Tassey and Tom Voorheis provide depth to the cross country roster.

SPRINTS/HURDLES

MILOS VUCKOVIC long-distance runners in the conference, he took third at the 2007 IC4A Cross Country Championships. Lundgren will join with senior Milos Vuckovic to anchor Manhattan’s cross country team. Vuckovic earned his degree in May 2010, but has one season of cross country eligibility remaining, which he’ll use this fall before joining the coaching staff as a graduate assistant.

In the sprints, Manhattan will rely on sophomores Tyrek Barney and Carlos Petrovich. The duo went 2-3 in the 400 meters at last year’s MAAC Outdoor Championships, and they both ran legs on the gold medal-winning 4x400 meter relay squad that clinched Manhattan’s 12th straight conference title. Senior Nick Estis battled through injuries during the 2010 outdoor season, but he’s Manhattan’s top short sprinter when healthy. Joining the track squad as a sprinter just during the indoor season is sophomore Anthony Vega. A member of the Manhattan baseball team, Vega is someone who Mecca thinks can definitely help the Jaspers at the MAAC Indoor Championships. Senior Justin Chiaravelle has been Manhattan’s top hurdler since his arrival in Riverdale. He’s scored in the 110

2011 • MANHATTAN COLLEGE TRACK & FIELD

DAN DUFFY meter hurdles at each of the past three MAAC Outdoor Championships, and Chiaravelle also took home the bronze medal in the 55 hurdles at last year’s MAAC Indoor Championships. Freshman James Cascio was a fourtime all-league selection as a hurdler at Somers High School, and fellow freshman Dimitri Mobley should make an impact in the 400 meter hurdles. Mobley attended Ramstein American High School on Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany last year, where he was named All-Europe.

JUMPS

One of the top sprinters on the team is also one of the best long and triple jumpers in the MAAC. Junior Albert Johnson III was the Most Outstanding Performer for Field Events at both the indoor and outdoor conference meets in 2010. He won the long jump at the MAAC Indoor Championships, then took gold in both events at the MAAC Outdoor Championships, setting a meet record in the triple jump. Johnson also won the triple jump at the IC4A Outdoor Championships and took third in the long jump at the prestigious Penn Relays. In addition, he’s the defending MAAC outdoor champion in the 200 meters. Sophomore Dan Duffy gives the Jaspers a dynamic 1-2 punch in the long and triple jumps. Duffy finished second in the triple jump at last season’s


MEN'S TRACK SEASON PREVIEW indoor titles before finishing fourth at the IC4A Championships with a clearance of 16’0¾. McGovern then cleared 16’7¼ to set a school record and place fifth at the IC4A Outdoor Championships. He also qualified for the NCAA East Regional in the event. The pole vault is one of Manhattan’s deepest events, as senior DeSean Hoosing, junior Chris Schaefer, and sophomores Andrew Petrovich, Yardley Keshinover and Matt Waldron are all capable of scoring in championship meets. Siljeback-Larsen and Degnan are strong pole vaulters, as well.

THROWS

MIKE CARROLL MAAC Indoor Championships, then took second in the long jump at the outdoor championships. Sophomore Mike Carroll is capable of scoring in both the long and triple jumps, but his strongest event is probably the high jump. He leaped 6’4¼ to earn a bronze medal in the high jump at the MAAC Outdoor Championships last season. Carroll is also an accomplished hurdler. Junior Ryan Degnan is a decathlete whose strength lies in the two vertical jumps (high jump and pole vault), while incoming freshman Matt Perrelli was an all-state selection in the high jump at St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School on Long Island. The most versatile member of the squad, sophomore Felix SiljebackLarsen is capable of providing points in a variety of events. He scored in four different events at the 2010 MAAC Outdoor Championships after claiming three medals at the indoor championships. One of the top decathletes in the Northeast, SiljebackLarsen finished fourth in the 10-event competition at the Penn Relays last year, collecting 6395 points. Indoors, he was the gold medalist in the heptathlon at the Metropolitan Championships. Sophomore pole vaulter Brian McGovern made quite an impact last year during his first season in Riverdale. He won both the Metropolitan and MAAC

In Mecca’s 24 years at Manhattan, he has, without question, always had talented throwers. That tradition continued last season when Seid Mujanovic won the IC4A Indoor Championship in the hammer throw. While Mujanovic has graduated, this year’s group is no exception. The Jaspers’ top returning thrower is junior Roman Ewald. After taking home the gold medal in the shot put at the 2010 MAAC Indoor Championships, Ewald won both the shot put and discus throw at the MAAC Outdoor Championships. He also qualified for the NCAA East Regional in the discus for the first time. Also expected to be a valuable contributor in the throws is junior Colin Quirke, who transferred to Manhattan this season after two years at the University of Oklahoma. Quirke ANDREW TRASS

represented Ireland at the 2007 World Junior Championships and holds three Irish national junior records. During two seasons at Oklahoma, he earned All-Big 12 honors in both the shot put and discus, and he also twice qualified for the NCAA Regional meet in the discus. A prized international recruit, freshman Rokas Kirlys comes to Manhattan from Lithuania, where he was named “Best Athlete in the Region” three times. Kirlys should immediately step in as a scorer in the shot put, weight throw and discus throw. Junior Andrew Trass is a capable shot putter, but his strongest event is the javelin throw. The defending MAAC javelin champion, Trass competed in the event at the 2009 IC4A Championships. Rounding out Manhattan’s corps of throwers are senior Patrick Consoli, as well as juniors Mike Letizia and Kevin Rheinheimer.

WOMEN'S TRACK SEASON PREVIEW

MARIA JANGSTEN Depth and versatility are the keys to a successful track & field program. Manhattan used that formula to win both the indoor and outdoor Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championships in 2010. The titles were the 13th (indoor) and 11th (outdoor) in Head Coach Dan Mecca’s career. Several key members of that team graduated, but they’ve been replaced by a talented corps of newcomers. That group joins with a stellar cast of veterans to form a squad that has its sights set on defending its championships.

meter hurdles and ran a leg on the Lady Jaspers’ gold medal-winning 4x400 meter relay team at the MAAC Outdoor Championships. Completing her cross country eligibility this fall is senior Jelena Rankovic. Rankovic has been among Manhattan’s top distance runners throughout her career, including a ninth-place finish at the MAAC Cross Country Championships in 2007. One of the more versatile distance runners on the squad is sophomore Meghan Marro. Marro competed in events ranging from 1000 to 3000 meters during the indoor season while also running the 400 hurdles outdoors. This year, she will add cross country to her repertoire. Rounding out the cross country roster are sophomore Christine Cristobal, a transfer from Quinnipiac University, as well as freshmen Meghan Hayes, Katie O’Connell and Elizabeth Rosenberger. During the indoor and outdoor seasons, Cristobal and O’Connell will contribute in the longer distances, while Hayes and Rosenberger are middle distance runners.

SPRINTS/HURDLES

Manhattan boasts one of the best groups of sprinters in the MAAC. Sophomore Ashley Bowman was named Most Outstanding Performer for Track Events after winning the 55 meters and 200 meters at the 2010 MAAC

DISTANCE/CROSS COUNTRY

Junior Maria Jangsten leads the way in the distance events. Jangsten was Manhattan’s top finisher six times during the 2009 cross country season. On the track, she won silver medals in the 800 meters and 1500 meters at both the indoor and outdoor MAAC Championships. Jangsten also competed at the 2010 ECAC Indoor Championships, finishing fourth in the 1000 meters. Another important member of the distance contingent is sophomore Emmy Koskinen. One of the top 800 meter runners in the conference, she took third in the event at the 2010 MAAC Indoor Championships. In addition, Koskinen claimed the bronze in the 400 JELENA RANKOVIC

2011 • MANHATTAN COLLEGE TRACK & FIELD

JACKIE HARGROVE Indoor Championships. At the outdoor championships, she won the 100 and 200 while also running a leg on Manhattan’s victorious 4x100 and 4x400 meter relay squads. In the 200 and 400 meters, the Lady Jaspers have a dynamic 1-2 punch in sophomore Cara Rostant and junior Heidy Palacios. Rostant finished second in both events at both the indoor and outdoor MAAC Championships last season. She also ran the anchor leg on both the 4x100 and 4x400 relay squads. Palacios was the 400 meter MAAC champion both indoors and outdoors in 2010, and she reached the finals of the 500 meters at last year’s ECAC Indoor Championships. Senior Jackie Hargrove has been a consistent performer in the 400 throughout her Manhattan career, placing no lower than fifth in the event at the MAAC Championships. She’s also a key member of the 4x400 relay. Senior Katelyn Savage is an accomplished short sprinter who will also long jump this year. Returning for her senior season, Siri Fagerlund is Manhattan’s best sprint hurdler. Fagerlund finished second in the 55 meter hurdles at the 2010 MAAC Indoor Championships then took the silver in the 100 hurdles at the outdoor championships. She also ran the leadoff leg on the 4x100 relay. Also one of the team’s top short sprinters, Fagerlund


WOMEN'S TRACK SEASON PREVIEW

MALIN OLSSON was the Most Outstanding Performer for Track Events at the 2009 MAAC Outdoor Championships, when she won five events (100, 200, 100 hurdles, 4x100, 4x400).

JUMPS

In the long and triple jumps, freshman Malin Olsson is expected to fill the void left by the graduation of school recordholder and two-time ECAC champion Malin Marmbrandt. Olsson was the long jump bronze medalist at the 2009 Swedish Championships. She will also be a valuable addition to the sprinting unit. The school record-holder in the indoor pentathlon, sophomore Andrea Nyback’s best event might be the long jump. She set an indoor school record in the long jump last season, only to have it broken by Marmbrandt later in the same meet. At the 2010 MAAC Indoor Championships, Nyback won gold medals in the 55 hurdles and high jump while also finishing second in the 55 meters and long jump. She missed most of the spring season with an injury, but is once again healthy and capable of contributing points all across the board. Another athlete capable of providing points in a variety of events is senior Megan Tice. Primarily a high jumper

(she holds the outdoor school record in the event), Tice has also scored at the MAAC Championships in the long jump, triple jump and pole vault during her career. Junior heptathlete Kristi Krull will also be looked upon for points in any number of events. Krull’s best events are probably the long jump and triple jump, but she also placed in the shot put at both the indoor and outdoor MAAC Championships last year. Since its introduction in the late ‘90s, the women’s pole vault has always been a strong event for Manhattan. This year is no different. Leading the way is sophomore Melissa Yap, who won the MAAC title both indoors and outdoors in 2010. She then added a silver medal in the event at the 2010 Empire State Games over the summer. Sophomore Lauren Bednarz finished second behind Yap at the 2010 MAAC Outdoor Championships and took the bronze as part of a 1-2-3 finish for the Lady Jaspers at the indoor meet. Joining them in the pole vault this season is freshman Sarah Moore. Moore qualified for the New York state meet during both her junior and senior seasons at Irvington High School in Irvington, N.Y. Moore will also compete in the triple jump at Manhattan. Tice is also an accomplished pole vaulter, as are junior Deena Sena and sophomore Elizabeth Cunningham.

MELISSA YAP

THROWS

The Lady Jaspers will look to a number of different people for points in the throwing events. Nyback will throw the shot put indoors and the javelin outdoors, while Krull can be relied upon in the shot put, discus and javelin. Freshman Tiffany Goodwin is another heptathlete who’s strong in the throws. While at East Meadow High School on Long Island, Goodwin won the 2010 Nassau County championship in the shot put. In addition, she twice competed in the event at the New York state meet. Among the pure throwers, senior Erin Morrison is Manhattan’s top returner. Morrison took fourth in the hammer throw at last year’s MAAC Outdoor Championships, and she’s previously medaled in both the shot put and discus, as well. This season, freshman Ashley Sims also enters the mix. Sims won three NNJIL Championships and earned Second Team All-County honors three times while at Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey.

THROWERS HAMMER THEIR WAY INTO THE HISTORY BOOKS

In 2005, four Manhattan College hammer throwers accomplished something that had never before been done in the history of NCAA track & field. Manhattan’s Zoran Loncar (207’2¼), Anders Constantin (204’6¾), Paul Peulich (204’4) and Michael Freeman (200’2) finished first, second, third and fourth, respectively, in the hammer throw at the 2005 IC4A Championships, all with throws over 200 feet. The four throws of 200plus feet marked the first time in NCAA history that any school had four hammer throwers eclipse the 200-foot mark in the same competition. “It’s just a tremendous feat,” said Head Coach Dan Mecca, who has coach All-Americans, Olympians, and NCAA Champions during his tenure at Manhattan.

“At the time it didn’t cross our minds that it could be an IC4A and NCAA record,” Mecca said. “We were just trying to score as many points as possible, and it wasn’t until after the fact that we realized we’d broken a record.” Success for Manhattan at the IC4As is not uncommon. The Jaspers have captured the second-most team titles in the history of the event, trailing only Villanova. Most recently, Manhattan captured the indoor team title in 2004. The brilliant showing by the throwers came just one year after Jake Freeman had set the IC4A record by winning all four indoor weight and outdoor hammer throw championships during his career.

The finish marked the first time that any school owned the top four spots in the hammer throw competition in IC4A history. It was also the second time in the IC4A’s storied 130-year history that a single school went 1-23-4 in any event, with the only other time being Villanova’s finish in the 1500 meters at the 1979 championships. 2011 • MANHATTAN COLLEGE TRACK & FIELD

One of the most accomplished sprinters in program history, she graduated with five school records (indoors: 55 meters and 60 meters; outdoors: 4x100m relay, 4x200m relay, sprint medley relay), all of which still stand. Tasker Sterling was named ECAC All-East five times.
