Caprotti named NEC's October Athlete of the Month
New England College cross country runner Jesse Caprotti (W. Shokan, N.Y.) has been named New England College’s October Athlete of the Month.
Senior runner Caprotti was the top finisher for the Pilgrims in every race throughout the month of October and in the TCCC Championship held on Saturday, Nov. 1. Caprotti was named TCCC Runner of the Week back on October 20 for his impressive performance at the Western New England College Invitation. In that race he finished the 8K race in a personal collegiate-best time of 27:45 and set the second fastest mark in NEC history.
In the TCCC Championship Caprotti finished tenth overall finishing the 8K race in a time of 27:37, which set a new personal collegiate-best and was just ten seconds shy of the NEC record holder. For his tenth place finish Caprotti was named to the TCCC All-Conference Team and helped his team to an impressive fourth place finish.
Caprotti will race again on November 15 when the team travels to Williams College to compete in the NCAA DIII Regional.
