“I am so grateful to be receiving this distinguished award!” said Muscaro. “I have been extremely fortunate to have so much support from my family, coaches, friends and the entire Merrimack College community and administration. Without them, this would not have been possible. I also want to thank those who thought I was worthy of such a prestigious honor; to be considered the Division II Honda Athlete of the Year is humbling and incredibly gratifying, and I cannot think of a better way to conclude my time at Merrimack. I cannot wait to see where the next steps of my track and field career take me and having this award has made my journey that much more special.”
