Assumption College

WORCESTER -- The Assumption Department of Athletics has announced that William Bennett, of Tewksbury, has been named to the 2019-20 Assumption Men's Track & Field roster and is competing during the indoor season.

The 2018-19 Men's Track & Field team matched its best indoor finish in program history at the 2019 Northeast-10 Championships by placing fifth, accumulating its highest point total ever, and four short of fourth place. Overall, the team broke nine school records during the season. This season, the Hounds welcome interim head coach Joe Sliwoski, who has spent the last two seasons as assistant coach in the Men's and Women's Cross Country and Track & Field programs. In the last two seasons, athletes in Sliwoski's event groups (sprint and hurdles) have broken 15 women's school records and eight men's school records.

"I am extremely excited about the opportunity to continue working with the Assumption track and field teams as their head coach," says Sliwoski. "The programs have grown so much over the last two seasons and I look forward to helping them build on last year's successes. We have an excellent group of student-athletes who work extremely hard on the field and in the classroom; we are looking forward to another record-breaking season."
