ELON, N.C. (May 9, 2024)

– The 2024 CAA men’s and Women’s Outdoor Championships head to Elon, N.C. on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11. The Championships are at the Jerry and Jeanne Robertson Complex on the campus of Elon University. 
 
The competition begins on Friday at 8 a.m. with the women’s 10,000m final – one of four running event champions crowned on day one. The men’s 10,000m (8:45 a.m.), women’s 3000m steeplechase (7:25 p.m.) and men’s 3000m steeplechase (7:45 p.m.) will also be conducted as while running prelims begin at 3 p.m.
 
Field events begin at 10 a.m. with the women’s hammer – the first of eight – handing out medals in men’s javelin (11 a.m.), women’s javelin (12:30 p.m.), men’s hammer (1 p.m.), women’s long jump (2 p.m.), women’s pole vault (3:30 p.m.), men’s long jump (5 p.m.), men’s pole vault (6 p.m.) on Friday. 
 
The championship fields expand by one team on both the men’s and women’s sides, welcoming Campbell to the mix. The Camel women finished third at the CAA Indoor Championship, and the men placed fourth, with five CAA Champions. 
 

Newcomers had instant success at last year’s CAA Outdoor Championships as Hampton and Monmouth finished runner-up in the women’s and men’s team races, while North Carolina A&T earned a top-four finish in both. However, it was the tenured league members who prevailed, with Elon winning its third straight women’s team title and Northeastern claiming its eighth consecutive men’s team title. 
 
On the women’s side, Elon looks to win its fourth straight CAA title on its home track. It will be no easy task, as Northeastern knocked off the Phoenix at the 2024 Indoor Championship to claim its first team title since 2018 outdoors. Campbell will also be among the contenders after finishing third indoors – the Camels were the runner-up at the Big South Outdoor Championships last season. You can also expect Hampton to challenge for the team trophy and better its second-place finish a year ago. 
 

Eight women will look to defend their gold medal performances from 2023. Northeastern’s Dominique Biron – a two-time Most Outstanding Field Performer at the CAA Championships – looks to win her fourth straight title in the heptathlon after setting the meet record last spring. Elon’s Leandra Lorenz and UNCW’s Courtney Lines have also won multiple league titles, as Lorenz has won back-to-back in the 1500 and 5000, while Line has claimed consecutive gold medals in the long jump, looking to become the first-ever to win three straight in the event. In addition, Charleston’s Luzy Lieger (pole vault), Elon’s Kaitlin McGoogan (hammer), Hampton’s Dejah Grant (400mH), Towson’s Manie Mevo () and William & Mary’s Arianna DeBoer (10,000m) look to defend titles, while Elon and N.C. A&T attempts to go back-to-back in the 4×1 and 4×4, respectively. 
 

For the men, Northeastern looks to continue its reign of dominance. The Huskies have won eight consecutive championships outdoors and both indoor team titles. North Carolina A&T had an impressive performance indoors this winter, falling just eight points shy of the team title after third-place finishes indoors and outdoors last spring. Monmouth has finished top three in all three of its CAA Championship appearances, including a runner-up effort last outdoor season, and is a top threat to knock off the Champs. Also, watch out for the Camels, looking to build off a fourth-place finish indoors and a runner-up effort at the Big South Outdoor Championships last year.

Twelve men attempt to defend their CAA titles from last season. UNCW’s Josh Parks and Nicholas Pisciotta of Northeastern try to make it three consecutive gold medals in the 400m hurdles and hammer , respectively. Last season’s Most Outstanding Track Performer, Ben Godish of Northeastern, tries to defend titles in the 1500 and 5000. In addition, Hampton’s Dugion Blackman (800m) and Abraham Evans (long jump), Monmouth’s Evan Niedrowski (javelin), North Carolina A&T’s Carlos Alexander, Northeastern’s Ethan Exilhomme (110mH), Noah Sweeney (100m) and Kyle Sarney (steeplechase), Stony Brook’s Evan Brennan (10,000m) as well as William & Mary’s Jason Nwosu (shot put) look to go back-to-back.
