Quiller, Williams win events at Albany Great Dane Indoor Track Classic

NEW YORK, N.Y.-- Senior Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.) captured the men's pole vault and sophomore Kim Williams (Buffalo, N.Y.)won the women's 200, highlighting the Binghamton track & field teams' showing at the Albany Great Dane Indoor Classic. There were 29 teams at the non-scoring meet.

Quiller's winning jump of 17-2 3/4 met the provisional standard for the NCAA Indoor Championships (which will be held March 9-10 at Arkansas). Quiller advanced to the NCAA indoor meet in 2005. Williams, meanwhile, clocked a school-record time of 24.28 in her triumph. She broke her own record of 24.48.

Other top finishers for Binghamton on the women's side were sophomore Katie Radzik (Mt. Sinai, N.Y.), who was second in the women's 3,000 (10:09.12), and freshman Kelda Nelson (Hillsborough, N.J.), who was second in the 5,000 (18:36.71).

On the men's side, senior Kevin Hall (Glen Falls, N.Y.) was seventh in the shot put with an IC4A-qualifying distance of 51-7 1/4 feet and sophomore Jimmy Massar (Johnson City, N.Y.), who was sixth in the men's 400 (49.11). Sophomore Justin Halleck (DePew, N.Y.) also qualified for the IC4A meet, placing fifth in the 35 lb. weight throw (55-10 ½).

Binghamton will take part in a pair of meets next week. Some athletes will head to the Penn State National Open on Friday while the remainder of the squads will head to the Colgate Invitational on Saturday.
