Binghamton track & field squads competes at Cornell Invitational


ITHACA, N.Y.-- Senior Paddy Hennessy (Selkirk, N.Y.) and junior Kevin Hall (Glen Falls, N.Y.) each broke a school record while winning an event while freshman Kim Williams (Buffalo, N.Y.) turned in a pair of first-place finishes, highlighting the Binghamton track & field teams' performances at the Cornell Invitational. There were no team scores kept during the meet.

Hennessy shattered his own school record by seven feet in winning the men's hammer. His distance of 188-6 also met the qualifying standards for both the IC4A Championships and the NCAA Regional Meet. Hall, meanwhile, captured the men's shotput with a distance of 51-3. He eclipsed his own record by eight inches and met the qualifying standards for the IC4A Championships.

Williams, meanwhile, took top honors in the women's 200 (24.99) and anchored the winning 4x100 relay team which included sophomore
Dayna Johnson (Brentwood, N.Y.), senior Nina Minasi (Suffern, N.Y.) and sophomore Keisha Short (Yaphank, N.Y.). The quartet's time of 48.22 met the standard for the ECAC Championship.

Senior Joe Flucus (Bronx, N.Y.) and sophomore Kris Yelverton (Vestal, N.Y.) were the other two individual winners on the men's team. Flucus won the 200 (21.95) while Yelverton was first in the pole vault (15-2 1/4). In the high jump, senior Luke Shafer (Penfield, N.Y.) finished second with an IC4A-qualifying height of 6-8 1/4.

Other individual winners on the women's side included senior
Jamie Stitt (Ballston Lake, N.Y.) in the pole vault (11-5 3/4), senior Joy Romulus (Washingtonville, N.Y.) in the 800 (2:19.01) and sophomore Aja Phipps (Mount Vernon, N.Y.) in the high jump (5-5).

Binghamton heads to the America East Conference Championships at New Hampshire next weekend. The Bearcats were fourth in both the men's and women's meets last season.
