William Delaney, Men's Cross Country

The GoBonnies.com Male Athlete of the Week presented by CPL for the week ending Oct. 6 is men's cross country senior William Delaney.

Delaney broke the St. Bonaventure 8K school record this past weekend at the Louisville Classic.

He shattered the 8K program record by taking advantage of the perfect conditions and a fast, flat course at Tom Sawyer Park, running the layout in a time of 25:36.6. That time easily eclipses what had previously been the program-best mark of 26:10.2 set by Nick Masiello six years ago.

Delaney, a native of Summit, N.J., now owns the Bonaventure 5K and 8K records - he broke the 5K record as a junior.

The Bonnies are back in action this Friday in Wilmington, Ohio.
