Shauneen Garrahan '07
Senior Shauneen Garrahan looks to repeat her success from her 2006 cross country campaign

Track Teams Set for 2006-07 Season

November 9, 2006

The women will lose the services of multiple school record holder Ginger Polich and Julia Rucker, but should be ready for big improvements as they return everyone else from the 2005-2006 season. With the return of NCAA Steeplechase Champion and Mile Runner-up Shauneen Garrahan taking the helm, anything is possible this year.

Zandra Walton proved that she was one of the best middle distance runners last year and should be an even bigger force this winter and spring in both the 800 and relay events, and should get a lot of help from classmate Caitlin Murphy and junior Meg Ray. The junior class comprises a strong collection of middle and long distance runners and should rack up points in the 800 through the 10k as NCAA Competitors Kim Partee and Heather Wilson along with Katie Moravec all look to improve upon their success thus far.

Sophomores Nicole Anderson (DIII NE Champ in the 5k), Elise Tropiano and Liz Dalton look to make their mark in the distance events. The sprinters should be able to rack up quite a few points in both relays and open events as DMR All-American Hannah Campbell and fellow co-captain Maria Millard (sprints, hurdles or the pentathlon) leads a strong group comprised of Kate Silverman, Jenny Mancino and Carly Levenson.

Several first-years could have a major impact including Jennifer Rybak (Hurdles, multi), Molly Toomey (Throws), Amanda McGinn (hurdles / jumps), Sophie Galleher (mid-long distance) and Catherine Knuff (mid-distance).

John Babbott '07
Senior John Babbott will look to lead the team in the mid-distance group

The men will return nearly the entire team from last year, and will look to the improve upon last year’s results considerably. The mid-distance group will probably be the strength of the team as seniors John Babbott and Sam Hayman, both earning All-American status in the DMR as sophomores, will lead Basile Beaty, Rom Cabeza, Jack Kiley, Eric Glustrom and Stephen Stewart.

The distance runners will be led by school record holding junior Tomas Morrissey, and he will get tremendous support from sophomore Harrison Lakehomer and junior Mike Harbus. Seniors Rob Boley and Rich Wilson, along with second year runner Peter Foote will strengthen the distance corps indoors before getting to their specialty, the steeplechase, during the outdoor campaign.

With a big group of incoming first-year runners competing in the middle and long distance events - including Daniel Murner, Carlyle Eubank, William Bell, Eric Holaday, Jimmy Swanson and Tommy Anderson - there could be plenty of surprises in those areas. Captain Steve Shashy will head the sprint group, as he will look to fare well in the long sprints and be joined by senior Geoff Stricsek and first-year Keith Pendergrass.
