Track & Field Begins Season at Cornell Indoor Relays

ITHACA, N.Y.—Junior Jenna Marrione tied a school record in winning the women’s pole vault and senior Kaitlin Sullivan set a school record in capturing the 60 hurdles, highlighting the Binghamton track & field teams’ performances at the season-opening Cornell Indoor Relays on Saturday afternoon. There was no team scoring kept at the meet.

Marrione, who was the America East Indoor and Outdoor runner-up last season, recorded a first-place height of 12-3 1/2. That tied ties the 2002 mark set by Kate Mullins. Sullivan, meanwhile, broke her own record with a first-place time of 8.90. She set the old mark of 9.02 last season.

Junior Jessica Hennig also broke her school record in the 300 with a time of 40.37. Although she placed second in the event, she broke her 2009 mark of 41.38. Hennig is the two-time defending America East Indoor champion in the 400.

On the men’s side, junior Jeff Martinez was first in the 5,000 (14:46.64) while senior Colin Anderson took top honors in the weight throw (56-10 3/4). The 4x400 relay team of juniors Devinn Askew and Casey Gilbert as well as seniors Karl Schnabl and Jesse McCormick clocked a winning time of 3:23.70.

Binghamton is off until Jan. 21, when it returns to Ithaca for the Cornell Upstate Challenge.
