Esposito Becomes First Male In School History To Compete at NCAA Track & Field Championships
BABSON PARK, Mass.—Junior Dominic Esposito (Massapequa, N.Y.) became the first male in Babson College track & field program history to take part in the NCAA Division III Championships when he competed in the decathlon at St. Lawrence University on May 21-22.
Following an outstanding spring that saw him break three school records and set personal bests in all 10 events while earning All-New England and All-ECAC honors, Esposito put together a tremendous performance to finish 15th overall at the NCAA Championships. Sitting in the 17th position after the first day, he came in 14th or better in each of the final five competitions, highlighted by a victory in the 1500-meter run in the final event of the meet to close with 6,120 points, good for the fourth most in school history.
Esposito's success on the biggest stage was a fitting conclusion to a great season. He broke his own records in the 110-meter hurdles and the pole vault, and became the first male since 2009 to earn All-New England accolades by coming in fourth with a school-record 6,159 points at the NCAA New England Championships on May 1. He followed up that performance by coming in third with 6,076 points at the ECAC Championships on May 14-15 to become the Beavers' first male All-ECAC honoree since 2006.
