Edison, NJ - The 2012 MAAC Men's and Women's Indoor
Track & Field Championships will take place on Friday, February 17
at the New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory in New York City.
The meet begins at 6 p.m. with the women's 5,000-meters on the track and the men's weight throw in the cage.
Last season, the Manhattan College men's team claimed its 16th
consecutive MAAC Indoor Track & Field title with a narrow five-point victory (141-136) over Rider University. Manhattan is the only current league member to win the Indoor title. Former member Army won the first two men's championships in 1989 and 1990.
On the women's side, Saint Peter's College won its first team title last year by edging Manhattan, 196-183. The Peahens, who also claimed the MAAC's Outdoor Championship, are looking to become the first school other than Manhattan to repeat as champions since Army from 1989-90. Manhattan has won 14 of the last 16 titles.
