Track & field squads take part in pair of meets


Graduate student Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.) placed second in the pole vault at the Collegiate Open in New York City on Saturday afternoon. His height of 17-4 1/2 was second to Jordan Scott of Kansas (18-0 1/2).

While Quiller and eight other Bearcat athleties were competing at the Collegiate Open, the rest of the men's and women's teams took part in the Cornell Open. The Bearcats' most noteworthy performance was turned in by junior Adam Hill (Delmar, N.Y.), whose fourth-place mile time of 4:21.1 broke the indoor school record. The previous mark of 4:21.2 was set by Paul Mucci, way back in 1973.

Binghamton hosts a tri-meet against Albany and Syracuse on Friday at 5 p.m. at the Events Center.
