Arnett wins 300 at season-opening Cornell Indoor Invitational

ITHACA, N.Y.--Sophomore Cazal Arnett, the 2008 America East Men's Rookie of the Year during both the indoor and outdoor season, won the 300 in record-breaking fashion, highlighting Binghamton's performance at the season-opening Cornell Indoor Track Invitational on Saturday. There were no team scores kept in the meet.

Arnett's first-place time of 34.20 shattered the previous school record of 35.4. That mark was set by Omar Eldakar in 2000. Also setting a school record on Saturday was senior Joanel Lopez in the shot put. His second-place distance of 51-9 eclipsed Kevin Hall's 2007 mark of 51-7 1/4.

Also on the men's side, freshman Eric VanAerman was third in the pole vault (15-3) while sophomore Chris Kowalski was third in the heptathlon (4,329).

Junior Magaret Tinker was the top women's finisher, placing second in the shot put (36-6.25). Freshman Samantha Howell was third in the 300 (42.90) while sophomore Rosie DeFino was third in the long jump.

The Bearcats are off until the West Point Invitational on Jan. 17.
