VESTAL, N.Y.-- For the second time in three years, senior pole vaulter Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.) has advanced to the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. The two-day event will be held Friday and Saturday at the University of Arkansas. The pole vault will start on 5:45 p.m. on Friday.

The the NCAA awarded bids to the top 13 pole vaulters (plus ties) this season. Quiller is in a three-way tie for eighth overall with a season-best jump of 17-8 1/2, which broke the America East record two weeks ago at the indoor conference meet.

As a sophomore, Quiller advanced to the 2005 NCAA Indoor Meet and placed 12th overall. Last spring, he advanced to the NCAA Outdoor Meet in Sacramento, Calif. and placed 13th.

Quiller is the second Binghamton athlete to qualify for the NCAA Championship this winter. This past weekend, freshman Josh Patterson (Ontario, N.Y.) placed second at the Colonial Atheltic Association Wrestling Championships and earned a wild-card entry to the March 15-17 meet in Auburn Hills, Mich.

Senior swimmer David Holmes (Doncaster, England) hopes to join Quiller and Patterson when the NCAA seedings are revealed on Friday at 6 p.m. He has already met the NCAA provisional standard in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle events.
