2016 is the sixth season for Mike Maceiko at the helm of both the men’s and women’s cross country teams. Maceiko is no stranger to WPI, serving as head track and field coach from 2005 until 2008. 

Under Maceiko's tutelage, the Crimson and Gray have performed well in the ultra-competitive NEWMAC with the men placing third and the women sixth each of the last two seasons.  In 2013 the men narrowly missed out on a top-ten finish at the New England Division III Championships, finishing 11th.  City titles have become common place for the Engineers under Maceiko as both teams have the swept the Worcester City during all three of his seasons as head coach. 

Academics have also been source of pride during the Maceiko era.  The men's team has paced the NEWMAC with a conference-high 23 academic all-conference honorees the last three years while the women's program has contributed 16 academic all-conference award winners during his tenure.

In 2011 the women’s team ran to a first place finish in the Worcester City Meet. The Crimson and Gray also had strong showings at the Western New England Invitational and the Engineers Cup, placing second and third respectively. Four of the team’s runners earned spots on the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Academic Team.

During his first tenure on Boynton Hill, the Engineers had numerous NEWMAC champions and All-New England and All-ECAC student-athletes. A particular area of strength is in middle distance running where six school records were broken under his watchful eye. In his final season at the helm, Maceiko had two student-athletes qualify for the NCAA Championships.

As a student-athlete, Maceiko enjoyed a standout collegiate career at UMass-Amherst while earning a bachelor's degree in business administration. A captain of the cross country team during his junior and senior seasons, Maceiko earned All-Atlantic 10 honors twice while picking up All-District accolades as a senior. He was part of the Minutemen's Atlantic 10 champion cross country squad in 1995.

Maceiko also enjoyed success on the track. During his indoor career, he was All-New England three times in the 4x800 and twice in the DMR. Maceiko also placed third in the 5000 meters at the All-New England Outdoor Championships. The native of Deer Park, NY on Long Island, Maceiko has worked at Unum Group Insurance Company in Worcester since 1997 where he is a Group LIFE Underwriting Consultant. He lives in Rutland, MA with his wife Meghan and their children Daniel and Kathryn.
