1973 NCAA title[edit]

Manhattan won the 1973 NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships becoming the smallest school to win a Division I track title. Lead by 1972 Olympians Anthony Colon of Puerto Rico and Michael Keogh of Ireland, the Jaspers won the title with 18 points and a 6 point margin.[2]

Rivalries[edit]

Manhattan has long maintained rivalries with several local, and MAAC Conference opponents. The Jaspers' most notable rivals are the Fordham University Rams, whom they compete in the "Battle of the Bronx" with, and the Iona Gaels. The Jaspers also maintain a very strong rivalry with the Siena Saints.
