NEW LONDON, Conn.-As the fall semester winds down and our Cadet-Athletes are wrapped up in exams the Athletic Department will take a look at the Top Moments from the Coast Guard fall sports season. The Department has compiled a top-ten list and will unveil one a day for ten business days starting with number ten and culminating with the announcement of the top moment on Tuesday, December 24th.
The #2 moment from this fall's Top Moment series was senior Gary Ezzo earning an invitation to the 2013 NCAA Men's Cross Country Championships. Ezzo became the first Coast Guard runner since Michael Flint (who did it three times) was invited in 2006 to earn an invitation to the National Championships.
Qualifying for the National Championships capped off a tremendous season for Ezzo. After being the Bears top finisher in every event he ran this season, he claimed a third place finish at the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championships and was named to All-New England with his 17th place finish at the New England Championships.
Stay tuned as tomorrow's installment of the Top Moment series will reveal the #1 moment from the fall season.
