VESTAL, N.Y. – Sophomore Jon King tied the school record in the men’s high jump, highlighting the Binghamton track & field teams’ performances at a pair of meets on Saturday. The Bearcats competed at both the Penn State National Open as well as the Cornell/Robert Kane Invitational.

King was one of a handful of BU athletes who took part in the prestigious meet at Penn State. He was seventh in his event with a height of 6-9. That ties the program’s 1997 record set by Daye Kaba.

At Cornell, meanwhile, junior Brandon Bordeau won the men’s shot put with a distance of 52-4. Runner-up performances were turned in by junior Josh Miller in the men’s 500 (1:06.16), sophomore Kierra Arthur in the women’s 60 hurdles (9.07) and junior Tonika Forrester in the women’s triple jump (36-4)

There was no team scoring kept at either meet.

Up next for Binghamton is the Sykes & Sabock Challenge next Friday and Saturday. That meet will also be held at Penn State.
