Marist Men Break 6,000-Meter Relay School Record
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – The Marist College men’s track team saw a 15-year-old school record fall on Saturday afternoon, highlighting competition at the Colonial Relays, held Friday and Saturday at the College of William and Mary.
Competing in the rarely contested 6,000-meter (4x1,500) relay, the team of Mark Vuono, Nick Salek, Charlie Ropes and Billy Posch placed seventh overall in 16:26.89, topping the 1998 mark of 16:39.38. Salek paced the team with the fastest 1,500-meter split of 4:03.5.
Earlier in the meet, on Friday, sophomore Ryan Scrudato placed second in the university division 5,000-meter run. Scrudato notched a personal-best time of 15:20.61. Later in the evening, senior Joel Moss placed 14th in a national-caliber field in the 10,000-meter run in 31:15.70. The time narrowly missed the IC4A standard of 31:08.00 in the event.
The men’s track team returns to action next weekend at both the Bucknell Bison Invitational at Lewisburg, Pa., and the Metropolitan Championships at Mahwah, N.J.
