 WORCESTER -- The Assumption Department of Athletics has announced that William Bennett, of Tewksbury, has been named to the 2018-19 Assumption Men's Track & Field roster. Bennett, Class of 2020, is competing during the Greyhounds' spring season.

During the 2018-19 indoor season, the Men's Track & Field team matched its best finish in program history at the 2019 Northeast-10 Championships by placing fifth. Though the team finished fifth last season, this year's team accumulated its highest point total ever, four short of fourth place. Throughout the indoor season, the team broke nine school records. The men look to build on their indoor success when they head for outdoor competition this month.

"This young team is incredibly talented, especially our group of first-year student-athletes," said Head Coach Trent Baltzell. "We anticipate that the success of our indoor campaign, coupled with the increase in skill, maturity, and natural development of our athletes, will translate into a fruitful outdoor season. Maintaining top performance in the classroom is also an important piece of our success, as we have found that there is a direct correlation between performance in the classroom and on the track."
