Bearcats begin competition on first day of National Open

UNVERSITY PARK, Pa.--Members of the men's and women's track team opened competition at the 2004 National Open at the Horace Ashenfelter III Indoor Track. The event was to continue with a full day of competition on Saturday and Sunday.

On the men's side, sophomore hurdler Adam Goldberg (New Rochelle, N.Y.) set a school record in the 60 meter hurdles, crossing in 8.48. He eclipsed the previous mark by just 1/100th of a second. Freshman Rory Quiller established that mark last week at the Cornell Challenge. Junior Mike Ksionzyk (Olean, N.Y.) finished seventh out of 40 in the pole vault with a leap of 15-3. Senior Andrew Cloud (Massapequa, N.Y.) placed 10th in the 35-pound weight throw with a measure of 53-5 3/4.

On the women's side, the Bearcats distance medley quartet of Mary Tursi (Staten Island, N.Y.), Karisa Heisler (Lansing, N.Y.), Joy Romulus (Washingtonville, N.Y.) and Kathryn Murnane (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) placed 12th with a time of 12:24.1.

Final results from the National Open will be posted on Sunday following the close of the competition. Members of both teams will also compete at the Army Invitational on Saturday. Those results will be on a separate release on Sunday.
