Complete Results

WEST POINT, N.Y. - Freshman high jumper Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.) shined in his hometown on Saturday, clearing a school-record 16-feet-4 3/4 to win the Army Dick Shea Open. But more importantly, his mark was good enough to qualify for the NCAA East Regional at University of Florida on May 28-29. Quiller becomes the first BU track and field athlete to reach the national stage.

Quiller topped the field by more than seven inches, breaking the school record of 16-2 3/4, set by Jason Gianotti in 2000. The NCAA standard was 16-feet-1. Quiller also placed second in the 110 hurdles (14.96).

Other individual standouts for the Bearcats included graduate student Mike Stewart (Massapequa, N.Y.), who won the 400 hurdles in 55.04. Junior Nick Tillman (Binghamton, N.Y.) placed second in the high jump (6-feet-4) and classmate Hasani Hampden (Freeport, N.Y.) took third in the 400 hurdles (56.32).

On the women's side, junior Lindsey Bohrer-Yardley (Oneida, N.Y.) won the 3,000 steeplechase in 11:03.7. Freshman Erica Angell (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) crossed second in the 5,000 (17:52), sophomore Jaime Stitt (Ballston Lake, N.Y.) was third in the pole vault (10-feet-10) and junior Lindsay Warren (Lansing, N.Y.) was third in the high jump (5-1 3/4).
