St. Bonaventure junior William Delaney paced the Bonnies throughout his first season as a collegiate runner in 2016, but sophomore year brought challenges.

Injury left him able to compete in just two events during his second season, but his third year as a Bonnie has seen him back on track.

Delaney, a native of Summit, N.J., returned during spring track season last year, but returned to cross country in emphatic fashion in September.

At the season-opening Little Three Championship, Delaney easily broke the program 5K record with his run of 15:53, the first sub-16:00 time in Bonnies history. 

Three weeks later, he posted the third-fastest individual 8K time in Bona history with his PR of 26:37 at the Anderson Invitational in Rochester.

During his career in Brown and White, Delaney has led the men's team in every cross country event he has competed in except one, last year's National Catholic Invitational where he first suffered injury.
