The Kenyon men have enjoyed steady progress under the direction of long-time head coach Duane Gomez and the program's advancement has continued on a pair of top-of-the-line tracks. Wilder Track, Kenyon's outdoor facility, was recently upgraded in 2005 with a pristine DeFargo 1000 Invitational surface. Toan Track, the indoor 200-meter oval located in the sparkling Kenyon Athletic Center, was recognized as the American Sports Builders Association's "Facility of the Year" after it opened in 2006.
Recent seasons have seen several long-standing College records fall by the wayside. In 2009, Kaleb Keyserling set a pair of outdoor records in the 3,000- (8:48.27) and 5,000-meter runs (15:00.47). One year later, Andrew Borrasso established a new indoor best with 2,648 points in the pentathlon. And just last season, Carlo Gagliardo, Conor Hennessey, Brendan Coyne, and Bob Wolf teamed up to establish a new College indoor record (1:33.16) in the 4x200-meter relay. On the outdoor oval, Gagliardo and Hennessey paired with Jake Fishbein and Joey Cordle to set the new mark (43.75) in the 4x100-meter relay. Additionally, three Kenyon student-athletes, Cary Snyder (1500m, 3:58.52), Michael Baird (3,000m, 8:38.46), and Mark Speer (high jump, 6'10"), still hold indoor conference records.
The long list of accolades is a direct result of Kenyon student-athletes' determination and focus in competition and in the classroom. Last season, members of the Lords' indoor and outdoor squads combined to record a grade point average of 3.49.
