Merrimack track re-writes record book in opening meet

(Continued)

Pimentel, who also is an assistant for cross country, hopes the success of this year’s women’s cross country squad, which advanced to Merrimack’s first ever NCAA Championship meet, will carry some momentum into the track season.

“There was little time off for those girls, but at the same time, it was a great experience,” he said. “There is definitely a lot of momentum in the program and our job is to keep that going and keep that moving forward. We had a good start, and now we have a little break before we race again (Jan. 18 at the Tufts Invitational), so it’s important to keep training through the holidays and be ready to go on the 18th, because that’s when it really picks up and we’re going just about every weekend after that.”
