Quiller named Men's Most Outstanding Performer at Great Dane Indoor Track Classic


NEW YORK CITY, N.Y.-- Graduate student Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.) won the men's pole vault and was named the Most Outstanding Performer, highlighting Binghamton's effort at the Great Dane Indoor Track Classic on Friday at the New York City Armory. There were no team scores kept during the meet, which ended late in the evening.

Quiller's jump of 17-9 1/4 set the college facility record. While the New York City Armory has hosted professional competitions, no college athlete has ever cleared the same distance.

Sophomore Chris Gaube (Vestal, N.Y.) and junior Adam Hill (Delmar, N.Y.) took the top two slots in the men's 5,000, finishing with times of 15:05.52 and 15:06.12 respectively. Freshman Cazal Arnett (Jamaica, N.Y.) was third in the men's 400 with a time of 48.77, which met the IC4A qualifying standard and was the fastest time ever recorded bv a Binghamton freshman.

Freshman Ashley Horton (Candor, N.Y.) captured the women's 5,000 (18:19.32) while senior Dayna Johnson (Brentwood, N.Y.) was first in the triple jump with an ECAC-qualifying distance of 40-9.

Freshman Christian Smith (Trumansburg, N.Y.) placed ninth in the men's 500, but he did tie the school record with a time of 1:05.61. Junior teammate Jimmy Massar (Johnson City, N.Y.) ran the same time last season.
