WELLESLEY, Mass. – The New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) announced today the postponement of its men's and women's cross country championship until Monday, October 31. The meet, originally scheduled for Sunday, will still be held at Franklin Park in Boston, Mass. and will begin with the men's race at 3:00 p.m. followed by the women at 4:00 p.m.
Due to course conditions and potential severe weather in the Boston area on Saturday night and Sunday, the park will close at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and remain closed through Sunday, necessitating the change.
MIT will look to defend both the men's and women's titles. Last year, the MIT men won their 13th consecutive league crown while the women won the championship for the fourth year in a row.
