With a new coaching staff, and four freshman runners, it is a year of new beginnings for the men's cross country team. Coming off an average season last year, expectations are high for the upcoming season. Head Coach John Sagnelli, who coached the University of New Haven for the past 12 years, is very excited with how the team is shaping up.
Freshman enthusiasm combined with senior experience erupted this weekend during the Fairfield men's and women's cross country team's participation in the NCAA northeast regional championships. At the end of the day they came away with the women in 33rd place overall and the men in 34th at Van Cortlandt Park of Westport on Saturday Nov.
This weekend the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championships saw Fairfield's men's and women's cross country team's fine display of athleticism and school spirit. Running with pride for their school's name, the Stags finished with very respectable results.
