2017 Spartan Alumni Run

2017 Spartan Alumni Run

The St. Thomas Aquinas Cross Country program celebrated the history of the program at the 2017 Alumni Spartan Run. Over 25 alumni members returned to Tallman Mountain State Park for the annual 5K run.  The men and women ran in their only co-ed race of the season in which they got to know a little more about their Spartan predescessors.  Senior Vincent Vazquez and sophomore Robert Guidicipietro crossed the line in tandem to notch the win.  Garvenchy Nicolas was the first alumni runner to finish in 3rd place overall.  Senior Kristen Borriello was the first woman to finish.  Ally Borriello, Kristen's older sister, took the honors for the alumna.  Following the race, the team and alumni enjoyed a brunch back at the St. Thomas Aquinas campus. "This is one of my favorite days of the year," commented 10th year head coach Nicole Ryan. "I appreciate how much support we get from our alumni and it is great to get them together on campus.  Not only do I enjoy hearing about their recent successes, but I also see the importance of their interaction with our current team."
