April 20, 2011Tweet
VESTAL, N.Y.—Sophomore pole vaulter Jenna Marrione has been named the America East Field Athlete of the Week. It marks the first time in her career that she has earned a weekly accolade from the conference.
At the Bucknell Bison Outdoor Classic this past weekend, Marrione won the pole vault with a height of 12-5 1/2. It is the top height recorded in the event by an America East athlete during the current outdoor season. In addition, it broke the 2001 Binghamton outdoor program record of 12-2 set by two-time NCAA Division II All-American Kate Mullins.
Marrione is a three-time all-conference selection, having earned runner-up honors at the 2010 and 2011 America East Indoor Championships as well as during the 2010 outdoor meet.
Binghamton heads to the Cornell Upstate Challenge this coming weekend.
The 2011 America East Outdoor Championships will be held May 7-8 at UMBC.
NOTES: Mullins still holds the Binghamton program’s indoor record with a height of 12-3 1/2. She was named All-America following the 1999 NCAA Division II Indoor and Outdoor Championships. In 2009, Mullins was inducted into the Binghamton Athletic Department’s Hall of Fame.
