Minutemen Head To Boston For New England Championship
Oct. 11, 2013
BOSTON, Mass. - With the team's trip to Wisconsin and the Atlantic 10 Championship coming up in the next three weeks, Coach O'Brien will rest his top runners allowing others to step up and get their chance to impress on the big stage. The New England Championship is set to begin at 11:00 A.M. at Franklin Park in Boston on Saturday.
Sophomores Miles Hodge and Sam Burke will be near the top of the pack as they cross the finish line on Saturday. Both have competed this season with Hodge having the most success in the preceding weeks. The New England Championship also presents an opportunity for Westfield, Mass. native Morgan Marlow to have his talent on display and show what he can bring to the table down the stretch. Marlow was teammates with this week's A-10 Rookie of the week, Blake Croteau in high school.
Next week the Minutemen will travel to Wisconsin for the very competitive Wisconsin Adidas Invitational. UMass ran against Wisconsin two weeks ago at the Coast-To-Coast Battle in Beantown.
