Return to Normalcy sets up cross country for championship racing


STONY BROOK, NY – A sense of normalcy returned to cross country.

After a spring 2021 reserved for the championships, the head coach Andy Ronan and Stony Brook’s cross country will have a five-game roster heading into the championship season this fall, highlighted by an opener on his home run on September 4.

“Both teams are back on campus and hope to have a normal cross country season this fall,” said the head coach. Andy Ronan noted. “I feel very good with the level of fitness in which both teams have returned to campus.”

They’ll start with a familiar track, when Stony Brook opens the season on September 4. After the Friar Invitational, the Seawolves will take two weeks off before the annual Paul Short Invitational.

The Princeton Invitational and Central Connecticut Mini Meet will then separate the Seawolves from the Eastern American Championships, which will be held on October 29 at the University of New Hampshire campus in Durham, NH.

“We will be focusing on the work needed to put ourselves in a position to challenge an East American Conference Championship in late October and a high finish at the NCAA Regional Championships in November,” added Ronan. “All of our training and races over the next 10 to 12 weeks will be geared towards achieving these goals.”
