Dennison Long

In his final meet as a Retriever, senior sprinter Dennison Long took home three gold medals and two league honors, the Most Outstanding Track Performer and the Coaches’ Award for amassing the most points of all competitors.

         Long started his final America East Championship Meet with a victory in the 100-meter run. The senior finished in an ECAC/IC4A qualifying time of 10.80.

         The sprinter followed that performance with another gold. After posting a qualifying time in the preliminary round, Long ran a 21.52 200-meter race to earn his second gold of the day.

         The senior was not finished there, however, and anchored the 4×100-meter to the top spot. Long, along with teammates Pat Balderson, Jenove Blanfort and Trae Proctor, ran an America East record time of 41 seconds flat. However, the University at Albany team also ran an official time of 41.00. Long defeated Winstor McCormack Jr. in a photo finish ending, and brought home the gold for UMBC.

           Long helped lead the Retrievers to a program best second place finish in the America East Outdoor Track Championship. The Retrievers finished behind the Albany Great Danes, who took home their 10th title in 11 years.
