Cross Country Announces 2014 Schedule, Captains
Men's Schedule  Women's Schedule

CASTINE, Maine -- Maine Maritime men's and women's cross country teams have locked in its 2014 schedule and announced its captains for next season.

The Mariners open their season Aug. 29th at the Mayflower Kickoff hosted by New England College and close out the regular season Oct. 25 hosting the Mariner Invitational at the Castine Country Club. The North Atlantic Conference championship will be hosted by Castleton (Nov. 1) followed by the ECAC Regionals (Nov. 8) and the NCAA Regionals (Nov. 15).

"It's a pretty competitive schedule with a wide range of opponents," MMA head coach Ryan King said. "The teams we face are really diverse, ranging from local schools to regionally and nationally ranked teams. It will be an exciting year."

The men's team announced Wyatt LaPage as its 2014 captain and the women will be skippered by Gabrielle Wells. LaPage and Wells replace the graduated Matt Methot and Emily Fanning. Captains are chosen by the previous seasons captains.

"All of the upperclassmen are expected to be leaders, but the captains will help with the administration of the team," King explained. "I know both Wyatt and Gabe will be excellent captains."
