Season Outlook The Running Warriors have proved themselves to be capable of being a worthy

opponent. In this 2010 season, both the Men and Woman’s teams came into pre-season strong, excited to work, and had captains (Seniors, Sharon Fetters and Aaron Baldwin) that led their respective teams with a strong work ethic.

Nyack looks forward to the return of other seniors, Lizzie Rigotti and Allie Roma to continue propelling this running program forward, as they enter their last year of college running. The names of a few new faces that have joined them are; walks-on’s, Sarah Beach, Anne Jackson, and Grace Olivieri, who are also seniors. Junior, Deborah McCarthy and Freshman Bethany Allison come aboard the Nyack family as well this season. These new Warriors hope to continue to building on the legacy they have created thus far and Head Coach, Wendy Muckell has this to say about the 2010 running warriors: Nyack looks forward to the return of Junior, Stephen Mitzel, Sophomores, Stuart Guild, and Ben Wallin to continue propelling this running program forward. The names of a few new faces that have joined them are; walks-on’s, Jeffrey Rodriguez who is a Sophomore, Freshman Keith Lindsay, and Jubert Derival who will be redshirting this season. Other freshman Stephon Whitaker comes aboard the Nyack Family and will be working with both the men and woman as team manager. These new Warriors hope to continue to building on the legacy they have created thus far and Head Coach, Wendy Muckell has this to say about the 2010 running warriors: “I am so excited to see what this season brings. Every year the runners bring something new and incredibly inspiring to the team. Although last year’s seniors will be missed, they will certainly be made proud by the returners and new runners. As a Running Warrior Alumni myself, it is so great to see how far this program has come; the talent that keeps sprouting is really marvelous. We will once again continue putting the Running Warriors name in the books as a force to be reckoned with.” Assistant Coach, Sarah Sauer returns for a second year of coaching alongside the 2009 graduate/former Running Warrior, Latia Deylii who in addition, will also be Assistant Coaching.

The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference is a NCAA Division II Conference composed of 14 institutions in Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The member institutions are Bloomfield College, Caldwell College, Chestnut Hill College, Concordia (NY) College, Dominican (N.Y.) College, Felician College, Georgian Court University, Goldey-Beacom College, Holy Family University, Nyack College, Philadelphia University, Post University, the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and Wilmington University. The CACC was founded in 1965. The conference included seven original members dating to the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA); Bloomfield, Caldwell, Dominican, Georgian Court, Nyack, Post and St. Thomas Aquinas when it made application to the NCAA Division II. The seven schools applied for membership in the fall of 1998. In 2002 the CACC qualified for NCAA Division II Provisional Conference Status and it achieved Active Status in July of 2004. Six schools: Bloomfield College, Caldwell College, Dominican College, Felician College, Georgian Court College and Post University, became full Division II members in 2002-03. Holy Family College, GoldeyBeacom College, Nyack College and USP became active DII members in 2003-04, followed by Wilmington College in 2004-05. During the span from 1998-2004, the conference underwent numerous changes in addition to upgrading to Division II. In 1999, St. Thomas Aquinas left the conference and five new members joined. Felician College, Goldey-Beacom College, Holy Family College, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (USP) and Wilmington College, all NAIA schools, immediately applied for Division II status upon becoming members. In 2000, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) boosted the membership to 12 schools and that number grew to 13 in 2005 as Philadelphia University started active membership. NJIT moved on to Division I status after the 2005-06 season. The addition of Chestnut Hill College in 2007 and Concordia College in 2009 brought the CACC to 14 members. With its ascent to active Division II status, the Conference made major improvements by introducing a new website and logo. Both were unveiled in July of 2004. The website, www., contains updated stats, schedules, results, photos and news about all 14 member schools. The site underwent a complete redesign in the summer of 2009. Off the court and field, the CACC and its student-athletes take pride in the balance between academics and athletics. The CACC finished third nationally among Division II Conferences for the graduation rate of its student-athletes, according to the latest NCAA report. Furthermore, the conference established its inaugural All-Academic team in the fall of 2004 and the number of names on the list continues to grow each year. The CACC honored over 220 scholar-athletes in 2009-10. Division II is composed of 22 conferences and 11 independent institutions ranging from coast-to-coast-and beyond. Division II is the only NCAA membership division with programs in Alaska and Puerto Rico. Furthermore, four of the five colleges on Hawaii are members of Division II.
