Last season, the Blue Devils grabbed their fourth-consecutive win and senior Colby Delbene crossed the finish line first, earning the NEC Individual Champion title. Delbene returns to the field this year along with three-time 2013 NEC Athlete of the Week Craig Hunt.

Hunt has earned two first-place finishes this season including topping the field at the Father Bede Invitational, hosted by Saint Francis U, on Sept. 28. The Blue Devils earned the victory in the meet, which took place on the same course as Saturday's championship race.
