Track teams set three school records at a pair of meets on Saturday

Freshman Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y./ James I. O'Neill), sophomore Kathryn Murnane (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) and junior Heather Tassler (Hartsdale, N.Y./ Woodlands) each set school records as the Binghamton track and field teams took part in a pair of meets on Saturday. Quiller and Murnane set their marks at the Penn State National Open while Tassler set her record at the West Point Invitational.

Quiller placed sixth in the heptathlon with a school-record total of 4,749 points. Murnane, meanwhile, broke her own school record in the mile with a time of 5:05.92. She finished 12th in that event. Tassler won the 60 hurdles at West Point in a time of 8.02 seconds. She was also second in the 200 (26.33).

Including Friday's first day at the Penn State National Open, the track teams set five total school records this past weekend. Sophomore hurdler Adam Goldberg (New Rochelle, N.Y./ New Rochelle) set a school record in the 60 meter hurdles, crossing the line in 8.48. He eclipsed the previous mark by just 1/100th of a second. Quiller established that mark last week at the Cornell Challenge. Junior Mike Ksionzyk (Olean, N.Y./ Olean) finished seventh out of 40 in the pole vault with a leap of 15-3.

Binghamton's other first-place finisher for the weekend was sophomore Erica Angel (Poughkeepsie, N.Y./ Spackenkill), who captured the 5,000 at West Point (18:59.3). Junior Lindsay Bohrer-Yardley (Oneida, N.Y./ Vernon-Verona Sherril) placed second in that same event (18:59.5) while senior Lisa Kemmerer (Bethlehem, Pa./ Freedom) was third (19:15.1). Also at West Point, junior Willa Payne (Sidney, N.Y./ Sidney) tied for second in the 60 hurdles (9.4), senior Patti Hong (Great Neck, N.Y./ Great Neck South) was third in the high jump (5-0) and sophomore Kate Williams (Liverpool, N.Y./ Liverpool) was third in the pole vault (10-0).
