Quiller earns All-America honors with fourth-place tie in pole vault at NCAA Outdoor Championships

SACRAMENTO, Calif.-- Senior Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.) earned All-America honors for the second time in his illustrious career by tying for fourth place in the pole vault at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Friday evening at Cal-State Sacremento. His top height was 17-6 1/2.

Quiller becomes the first Binghamton Division I athlete to earn All-America honors twice in a career. Back in March, he finished second at the NCAA Indoor Championship with a jump of 18-0 1/2. All-America honors at the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field Championships are awarded to the top eight individual finishers in each event.

Friday's performance caps off the best year that any Binghamton athlete has had at the NCAA Division I level. In addition to earning a pair of All-America honors, Quiller broke the NCAA East Region Outdoor record in the pole vault two weeks ago (18-1), was named the NCAA Northeast Region Field Athlete of the Year, the America East Conference Outdoor Track Most Outstanding Field Athlete and was named the Binghamton Athletic Department Male Athlete of the Year for the second time in three years.
