Schiele was continuously in the middle of the team's varsity rotation throughout the season, surpassing his personal best time by checking in at 25:24 at the Mel Brodt Invitational. In the Atlantic 10 Championships, Schiele guided his Flyers to a 4th place overall finish, turning in a 25:46 mark that was good enough for 42nd place individually.
Another standout rookie, Schiele competed in every single race for the Flyers in 2009. He began the season with two great performances at the Flyer 5K (14th) and Mel Brodt Invitational (16th), both meets in which the Flyers were able to take the top spot. Though he ran his personal best time of 25:33 at the Mel Brodt, Schiele also stepped up and ran as the team’s sixth man at the A-10 Championships, where the team took third overall – its best finish ever.
