Rooney Dominates

mcneese

David Rooney was the star performer of the first day of conference action, dominating the Southland Conference to win by 27 seconds. He romped home in a hugely impressive 8k personal best time of 23.33, a time that would be competitive on any course. In a fixture with many British and Irish athletes competing for McNeese State and Lamar, it was the Rooney-led McNeese team who took top honours on this occasion over Darren Gauson coached Lamar.

Elsewhere, there were comfortable team and individual wins for New Mexico men and women in the Mountain West Conference held in Las Vegas, with Luke Caldwell picking up his first title. Only six teams competed in the mens race and with the departure of BYU and TCU, the Mountain West Conference is currently in the process of rebuilding as speculation continues as to which teams may join the league next year.

There was a pair of individual runner up finishes for Providence athletes Shane Quinn and Sarah Collins in the Big East Championships, with both athletes being defeated by less than a second by Martin Hehir and Sarah Lipari respectively.
