ITHACA, N.Y. – Three first-place finishes and a pair of school records highlighted the Binghamton track & field teams’ performances at the season-opening Cornell/ Greg Page Indoor Relays on Saturday. There was no team scoring kept at the meet.

On the women’s side, freshman Keishorea Armstrong won the 60 in a school-record time of 7.63. She also ran 7.62 in the trials. The old record of 7.80 was set by junior teammate Ivory Taussig last year.

Also placing first for the women was sophomore Kierra Arthur in the 60 hurdles (8.90).

Sophomore Tori Shaffer was second in the high jump with a height of 5-8, which tied the 2012 school record set by Ashley AuPont. Armstrong was sixth in that event with a height of 5-5, which tied the program’s 1992 freshman record set by Tracy Canino.

On the men’s side, the 4x800 relay team of senior Raul Avalos, junior Carter Humphrey, sophomore Adam McIe and freshman Patrick McGuire clocked a first-place time of 8:04.54.

Binghamton returns to Cornell for the Southern Tier Collegiate Open Jan. 10
