VERY GOOD NEWS: Monmouth University will confer a truly major honor on Coach Joe Compagni with the decision to name its recently (well two years ago) reconstructed outdoor track and field facility at Kessler Stadium, and adjacent field event venues, in his honor, joining such existing campus facilities as The Bill Boylan Gymnasium and The Richard Steadman Natatorium..
Formal naming ceremonies will be announced for a date this fall...
In 24 outstanding years at the helm of Monmouth men's and women's track and field and cross country teams, Coach Compagni (who formally retired as head coach in 2020) led his athletes to 58 conference team titles, a long array of brilliant performances, and vast revisions in the Hawks' record books, along with an outstanding academic record.
The greater Shore Athletic Club community extends its most sincere congratulations to Coach Joe on this great honor !!i
BUT THIS VERY UNFORTUNATE NEWS: News bulletin: The Monmouth University men's and women's track and field teams will not be competing in the IC4A/ECAC Championships May 14-16th. Due to positive Covid results among Tier 1 members of the teams, the decision has been made not to compete at the events.
