NEW YORK, N.Y. – Junior Jesse Garn won the men’s 1,000 at the New York City (NYC) Armory Collegiate Invitational on Friday evening. The meet, which did not include team scoring, featured athletes from over 100 colleges and universities across the nation and around the world.
In the fourth and fastest heat of his event, Garn clocked a time of 2:21.99. He finished ahead of second-place Mohamed Souleiman of Ottawa (2:22.46) and third-place Sacha Smart of Toronto (2:23.50). The 33 runners entered in the 1,000 came from programs such as Kansas, Duke, Villanova, Army and Mississippi State.
Garn is seeking to follow up on a stellar sophomore outdoor track campaign. He won the 1,500 at the America East Championships and was 13th overall in that event at the NCAA East Regional Meet.
Garn’s time just missed breaking the school record of 2:21.28 set by four-time All-American Erik van Ingen in 2011.
The rest of both Binghamton track & field teams compete at the Sykes & Sabock Challenge on Saturday at Penn State. The men were sixth in the eight-team field while the Bearcat women were seventh.
Sophomore Ethan Hausamann took top honors in the men’s 3,000 with a time of 8:25.21. It was his second individual win of the indoor season. He also won the mile at the Southern Tier Collegiate Open back on Jan. 10.
On the women’s side, junior Alexx Baum was the top performer, placing third in the triple jump (38-11). Sophomore Nina Sarmiento, meanwhile, placed seventh in the 600 but turned in a school-record time of 1:36.93. The old mark of 1:41.23 was set by sophomore teammate Sarah Loud in 2013.
Binghamton heads to the Ithaca Bomber Invitational next Saturday.
