Vinny Castronuovo

Vinny Castronuovo

President

Hey everyone, I’m Vinny, a 4th-year Mechanical Engineering major from Carmel, NY, and I’ll be the President of NUCR this season. I enjoy racing most longer distance events from 3k through marathon, but have recently been favoring some of the longer races. I’ve been quite obsessed with this sport for the past 8 years and have been a captain on this team since my Freshman year, so feel free to talk to me if you have a club running question or just want to talk about running! Looking forward to another great season!

Rose McDonnell

Rose McDonnell

Vice President

Hi all!! My name is Rose McDonnell and I’m super pumped to be NUCR’s vice president this season. I’m a 4th-year and I’m majoring in Behavioral Neuroscience. I’ve been a member of club running since my first year and the crew has helped me grow into a better runner and person (cheesy but true!). This season, I’m looking forward to hopefully getting back to racing on the track, training for a marathon, and finding the ideal balance between working hard and having fun.

Alex Knueppel

Alex Knueppel

Secretary

Hi, I’m Alex and I hail from the great state of Minnesota. Since joining NUCR almost four years ago, the team has become a defining part of my college experience. I’m happy to say that NUCR has introduced me to some of my best friends and given me countless great memories. Competing with this team reignited my passion for running and has pushed me to run faster than I ever thought I could. I want to make sure NUCR members, present and future, can have the same fantastic experience that I’ve had. Feel free to reach out to me with any social event ideas you may have!

Sprint Captain

Hey everyone! My name is Brandon, I’m a second-year Data Science major from Rocky Hill, CT, and I’m very excited to be the NUCR sprint captain this season! I joined our team last spring, but I’ve been running since middle school. It has been a great experience being in the club and meeting the wonderful members of our team so far, and I am looking forward to training and racing with you all this season!

Kathryn McCarthy

Kathryn McCarthy

Distance Captain

Hey there! I’m Kathryn, a 2nd year biology and math combined major from Southborough, MA (about 30 min west). I’m super excited to be your distance captain; I’ve been reading all about workouts, and I love learning about how the science from my classes applies to our training! I first began running in high school, and joined NUCR last spring. Since then, I have met tons of amazing people, who I am proud to call both friends and teammates. I’ve been counting down the days to our first practice, and I’m thrilled to train with you all once again this spring season!!

Caroline Meehan

Caroline Meehan

Treasurer

Hey, I’m Caroline. I’m from Long Island, NY and I’m a second-year mechanical engineering major. This season, I’ll be acting as treasurer. I’ve been on the team since last spring, but we couldn’t race, so I’m excited for all of the track and road races we have planned for this semester. Joining this team has led me to have some of the best experiences and friends I could ask for, and I’m really looking forward to making more this season!

Tony Cusato

Tony Cusato

SID

Hey everyone, my name’s Tony and I’ll be your SID for Spring 2022!  I’m excited for the upcoming season and can’t wait to see what our team accomplishes this year! I joined NUCR as a freshman and it really helped me with the transition into college. The amazing people I’ve met through this team have made it an integral part of my time at Northeastern. If you can’t find me doing something NUCR related, I’m probably sleeping, eating, or sleeping and eating simultaneously. I’d love to get your input on how we can improve our outreach, so feel free to reach out to me with any comments/questions. See ya at practice!
