Pirozzi Wins Landmark Men’s Track Athlete of the Week

WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America rookie runner Cosmo Pirozzi was honored by the Landmark Conference as he was awarded the Men's Track Athlete of the Week award as announced by the league office on Monday.

Catholic competed in its penultimate meet before the Landmark Championships and put forth a strong effort at the Messiah Invitational as the Cardinals finished sixth in a field of 18 teams.

Pirozzi had one of top performances of the day with a second-place finish in the 800 as he crossed the finish line in 1:57.72. He was less than a second behind Messiah senior Nate Pardoe.

Pirozzi made it two silvers on the day as the Cardinals' 4x400 relay team earned second as the group of junior Brian Seward, Pirozzi, and sophomores Peter Binck and Derek Chapey combined for a time of 3:30.1.

The Cardinals will get a two-week break with Easter Sunday next week before going cross-town to Gallaudet for the Bison Invitational on Saturday, April 22, the final tuneup before the Landmark Championships.
