Women picked fourth, men tabbed seventh in America East Cross Country Poll
VESTAL, N.Y.-- The America East has released its first-ever cross country coaches' poll and the Binghamton women's team has been picked to finish fourth out of nine teams at the championship meet, which it will host on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. In the men's poll, Binghamton was picked to finish seventh.
Boston's women's team and New Hampshire's men's team were picked to repeat as conference champions. Stony Brook and New Hampshire were picked second and third in the women's poll while Maine and Albany were chosen in the same order on the men's side.
Freshman Katie Radzik (Mt. Sinai, N.Y.) has been the Binghamton women's top runner so far this season, having won both the Colgate and Binghamton Invitationals. Senior Stacy Kramer (Loudonville, N.Y.), who earned all-conference honors last season with a 10th-place finish at the championship meet, has been the Bearcats' second runner.
Senior Erica Angell (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.), who also earned all-conference honors last season, is recovering from minor injuries but figures to be back in form by the end of the season. Junior Taryn Menard (Cicero, N.Y.), who has been the team's third runner in both races, appears to be the most improved runner on the team .
The men's team has been paced by freshmen Adam Hill (Delmar, N.Y.) and Connor Martin (Fairport, N.Y.). Hill won the season-opening Colgate Invitational. Like Menard on the women's team, junior Jeff Herbert (Somerville, N.J.) has been the men's third runner and has made the most been battling injuries but should be back in form by the conference meet.
