Binghamton track & field program inks two high school standouts

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton track & field program has received a National Letter of Intent from two high school seniors, both of whom will begin their freshman seasons next fall.

Kevin Ralston (Pomona, N.Y.) competes in the long jump for Ramapo High School. He finished eighth at the most recent New York State Indoor Meet.

"Kevin is a solid all-around athlete who will focus on the long jump," head coach Mike Thompson said. "He should make an immediate impact at the conference level."

Caitlin Wright (Ithaca, N.Y.) competes in the long and triple jump events as well as in the 400 hurdles for Lansing High School. She was the runner-up in both the 600 and triple jump at the Section IV Indoor Meet this past February.

"Caitlin is a strong quarter miler who also excels in the long jump and triple jump," Thompson said. "She will add the pole vault to her repertoire at Binghamton and should contribute immediately to our goal of becoming a top-three conference team in 2007."
