Binghamton track & field competes at Penn Relays
Quiller captures pole vault, Martinez breaks own school record in 10,000
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Junior Robb Quiller won the men's pole vault and sophomore Jeff Martinez broke his own school record in the men's 10,000, highlighting Binghamton's performance at the three-day Penn Relays, which concluded on Saturday afternoon. There was no team scoring at the meet.
Quiller, who has won the past two America East Outdoor pole vault titles, cleared a winning height of 15-7. Sophomore Adam Helman was eighth (15-3).
Martinez, the defending America East Outdoor champion in the 10,000, placed fourth in the event with a time of 29:48. He is the first BU runner ever to break 30 minutes in the event, having held the previous program record of 30:05.46 (set in 2010).
Elsewhere at the meet, the men's 4x400 relay team of sophomore Casey Gilbert and seniors Christian Smith, Andy Haupt and Cazal Arnett, placed fourth with a time of 3:10.04. Arnett also joined junior Jesse McCormick and fellow seniors Erik van Ingen and Casey Quaglia to finish seventh in the Distance Medley Relay (9:45.17). That mark shattered the 2003 program record of 10:43.43.
Binghamton competes in the Cornell Big Red Invitational on Sunday.
NOTE: Frank Savinon, Hasani Hampden, Steve Reese and Matt Dresser were the runners on the previous school-record Distance Medley Relay team.
