New Haven, CT | The College of Staten Island men’s and women’s outdoor track and field seasons officially came to an end today at Southern Connecticut State College, home of the ECAC Division III Championships over the last couple of days. CSI sent a small handful of competitors to the meet, and all came out showcasing nicely at the event.
Wednesday’s competition featured just two events for CSI. The first was the Women’s Javelin throw, where both Rachel Edmonds and Cassidy Iannariello tossed for CSI. Edmonds posted a distance of 28.90 meters, a new personal-best for her and good enough to place 10th overall in the field. Iannariello tossed her javelin at 24.48 meters, placing 17th overall, just three meters off of her personal best.
CSI’s other competitor on Wednesday was Jordan Thompson in the 100-meter Dash. Thompson finished 15th overall with a final run of 11.63, less than two-tenths of a second off of his personal-best race time.
On Thursday, CSI continued with it’s distance events primarily. The first saw CSI senior Liam McMunn shine brightest, as he competed in the 1,500-meter Run and he became CSI’s first-ever varsity medalist, as he scored a third-place finish, putting up a time of 4:15.01, beating a previous-best for him and truly ending his career in the best way possible in the event. An hour later, McMunn appeared again in the 800-meter Run, posting a time of 2:03.21 which landed him a 5th place finish. It was another great finish for the senior and helped the Dolphins finish in 18th place overall with a total of 12 points.
The CSI men finalized on Thursday with Thompson’s running of the 200-meter Dash, placing 7th overall with a time of 22.76, a personal-best for him, tidying up a fine freshman campaign.
