      Men's Outdoor Track & Field Ends a Victorious Season

      Senior Ernie Pitone

      Pitone races in the NCAA Division III Track & Field Championships to close out his career at Widener.

      The Widener University Men’s Outdoor Track & Field team captured its 20th Middle Atlantic Conference championship in program history on May 6. The Pride's relay team, which included senior Honorio Freeland, junior Nate Sites, sophomore Sean Stovall, and junior Josh Tupper finished more than two seconds ahead of the rest of the field with 3:21:58, to clinch the team's sixth straight crown.

      With the victory, the Pride's senior class completed a dynasty of success by winning 12 Middle Atlantic Conference championships over four years in the sports of Men's Cross Country, Men's Indoor Track & Field and Men's Outdoor Track & Field.

      Three weeks later members of the team competed in the NCAA Division III Track & Field Championships at the SPIRE Institute.

      Senior Ernie Pitone placed ninth in the 5,000-meter run with a time of 14:42:58. He ends his career as one of the most decorated student-athletes in any sport at Widener, earning six All-American awards and being named a 12-time Middle Atlantic Conference individual champion.

      Josh Tupper, a junior, competed in the 400-meter dash and Josh Colley, a senior, participated in the triple jump. Colley was one of the best jumpers in school history for Widener. His long jump at the 2015 Middle Atlantic Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships is a school record.
