Track & field competes at ECAC/IC4A Outdoor Meet

May 13, 2013Tweet
PRINCETON, N.J. – Junior Alexis Murray was fifth in the triple jump and the women’s 4x400 relay team shattered the school record, highlighting Binghamton’s performance at the ECAC/IC4A Championships this past weekend at Princeton University. The Bearcat women were 40th in the team standings.
Murray, who scored a team-best 22 points at the America East Championships two weeks ago, recorded a distance of 40-11 ¾.
The 4x400 relay team of senior Jessica Hennig, juniors Erika Kisel and Kathleen Klein and sophomore Ivory Taussig, meanwhile, clocked a eighth-place time of 3:44 in the preliminary round. That shattered the previous 2007 record of 3:47.47. Due to their exam schedules, the quartet opted not to stay for the finals on Sunday.
Freshman Jacqueline Huben, who won the America East 3,000 steeplechase title two weeks earlier, was 16th overall this past weekend (10:50.87).
The top finisher on the men’s side was senior Adam Helman, who was 10th in the pole vault.
Up next for Binghamton is the NCAA East Regional Meet, which will be held at North Carolina A&T May 23-25.
