Kassandra Kromish of Marlton Helps RPI Cross Country to League Championship


TROY, NY (10/31/2016)-- Kassandra Kromish of Marlton 08053 helped the nationally-ranked Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) men's cross country team win its first outright Liberty League Championship on Saturday at Seneca Lake State Park in Geneva, N.Y.

Kassandra, a Environmental Engineering major from Branford High School, is a freshman who finished the 6K course in 25:59.9 (6:59 pace) to place 64th overall in the 121-runner field.

RPI finished first with 30 team points, finishing comfortably ahead of second-place St. Lawrence (46) and third-place RIT (71). Vassar (108) finished fourth followed by Clarkson (125), William Smith (191), Union (216) and Bard (237).

The No. 16 Engineers, who have now won two meets this year with one runner-up and a third place finish, are idle until November 12 when they compete in the NCAA Atlantic Regional at Rowan University.

Founded in 1824, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is America's oldest technological research university. For nearly two centuries, the Institute has been a driving force behind breakthroughs in engineering and science in virtually every arena-from transportation and infrastructure to business, medicine, outer space, and cyberspace.

As it approaches its bicentennial anniversary, the Institute continues to define The New Polytechnic, a new paradigm for teaching, learning, and research that uses advanced technologies to enable fresh collaborations across disciplines, sectors, and regions, in order to answer the global challenges of our day.
