Mariners Tabbed Third Heading into Outdoor Season

Kings Point, NY – The United States Merchant Marine Academy men's track and field team was selected third by Landmark Conference coaches heading into the 2013 outdoor season.

The Mariners are coming off of a third place finish at Landmark Conference Indoor Championships as the rest of the conference picked Merchant Marine to carry over similar success once outdoor competitions begin.

Although USMMA will lose All-Conference performer Mickel McGann (Ocala, FL) to sea, they will be returning other key athletes who did their sea-split during the indoor season.

Moravian College, who has won every single outdoor Landmark Conference Championship to date, was once again picked to lead the conference.  Full preseason poll results listed below:
