Rowan men dip under 10 minutes, shatter school record in DMR, move up in national rankings!!!!!

Southern Regioinal’s Nick Nocco, Sterling’s Francis Terry, South Brunswick’s Nick Neville and Brick Memorial’s Kevin Veltre teamed up to shatter Rowan University’s distance medley school record at the All-Atlantic Region Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships at Ithaca’s Glazer Arena.

Rowan ran 9:58.72, getting under 10 minutes for the first time in school history indoors.

The previous school record was 10:03.46, set in 2016 at the Ocean Breeze track by Pat McCurry of Hammonton, Neville, Brandon Eldershaw of Jackson and Walter Victor of Gloucester County Tech.

The outdoor school record is a hand-timed 9:58.2 set by Anthony Stone, Willie Richardson, Tavo Rivera and James Boffa back in the Glassboro State days in 1981.

Nocco led off with a 3:05.48 for the 1,200, Terry followed with a 48.46 for 400, Neville split 1:52.43 to set up Veltre, who anchored in 4:12.37.

Rowan placed second to SUNY Geneseo, which got a 4:09.97 anchor from Isaac Garcia-Cassani to run 9:56.94.

Rowan’s time is No. 5 in NCAA Division 3 this year going into the NCAA Division 3 national championships at Naperville, Ill., next weekend.
