VESTAL, N.Y.-- Seniors Neil Case (West Winfield, N.Y.) and Jared Ketchuck (Endicott, N.Y.) each won individual titles as the Binghamton track and field teams hosted the second and final day of 2005 America East Conference Championships on Sunday afternoon. Both the men's and women's teams finished in fourth place. Albany won the men's meet while Northeastern was victorious in the women's meet.
Case captured the men's 400 hurdles with an IC4A-qualifying time of 52.52. He finished a convincing 1.28 seconds ahead of second-place David Benedetto of New Hampshire. In addition, Case's time also broke the school record of 52.88, set by Mike Stewart last season.
Ketchuck took top honors in the shotput with a throw of 14.78 meters. Later in the meet, he also took sixth place in the discus (43.13 m.).
Also on the men's side junior Adam Goldberg (New Rochelle, N.Y.), who won the high jump on Saturday, continued his impressive meet with a second-place finish in the 110 hurdles (15.07). Sophomore Joe Flucus (Bronx, N.Y.) was third in both the 100 (10.98) and the 200 (21.80) and sophomore Kevin Hall (Glen Falls, N.Y.) was third in the shot put (14.66 meters).
In relay events, the men's 4x100 relay team of Goldberg, Case, Flucus and sophomore Sam DePaola (Dix Hills, N.Y.) placed second with a school-record time of 41.93. They broke the old mark of 41.98 set back in 1989.
On the women's side, freshman Dayna Johnson (Brentwood, N.Y.) , who won the long jump on Saturday, placed second in the triple jump with a personal-best distance of 12.22 meters. Senior Lindsay Warren (Lansing, N.Y.) was third in the high jump (1.58 meters) and fellow senior Monisha Mealing (Brentwood, N.Y.) was fourth in the heptathlon.
PLEASE NOTE: Senior Heather Tassler (Hartsdale, N.Y.), who placed eighth in the 200 (25.78) set a school record in the preliminaries on Saturday (25.21). She topped the old mark of 25.33, set by Anecia Modeste in 2002.
