Siena finished the MAAC Indoor Championship with four Top-10 finishes in day two. The men finished in eighth and the women took seventh as a team. Sophomore Sarah Forman became Siena's first title winner after winning the 3000m.

"I'm really proud of the progress these athletes have made in the past year, and even just throughout the past season," said head coach John Kenworthy. "We scored more points and had higher individual finishes than last year's meet. There so many moments we can walk away from this meet proud of. Sarah Forman taking home our first MAAC Championship, Evans Kibets finishing second, Kelly Pasko finishing third obviously highlight the day. But there wasn't a person who raced this weekend who didn't pull their weight. Top to bottom we are headed in the right direction and I can't wait to see how it all unfolds this springs."

Sophomore Sarah Forman became the first Siena Division I title winner. She took the 3000m gold with her 9:55.79 race.

Prior to Forman's finish Evans Kibet took his part in the 800m finals. He finished second overall with a time of 1:53.83. He broke his own school record and qualified for the IC4A Championship. This is the highest men's finish at the MAAC Championship and the first IC4A individual qualifier for Siena.

Travis Fairlee advanced to the finals by making the top-10 in the prelims. He finished ninth overall with a time of 4:19.25.

On Saturday, senior Kelly Pasko took the bronze in the 5000m with a time of 17:37.49. She then followed that up with a top-10 finish in the 3000m with a time of 10:08.74.

Senior Nick Cornine finished 13th in the 3000m with a time of 8:43.67, Michael Rautter followed directly behind him to finish 14th with a time of 8:44.86.

Both the men's and women's team finished eighth in their respective 4x400m relay. The women finished in 4:18.76 while the men finished in 3:35.87.

Forman and the men's relay team will compete at the ECAC/IC4A Championships from Mar. 3 - Mar. 5 in Boston, Massachusetts at Boston University.
