Massar wins twice, Hennessy sets school record at West Point Track Invitational
WEST POINT, N.Y.-- Freshman Jimmy Massar (Johnson City, N.Y.) won a pair of events and senior Paddy Hennessy (Selkirk, N.Y.) lowered his school record in men's hammer throw, highlighting the Binghamton track & field teams' performances at the West Point Invitational on Saturday. There were no team scores kept during the meet.
Massar, who went to nearby Johnson City high school swept the men's 100 and 200 with times of 10.6 and 22.5 respectively. His 100 time met the IC4A qualifying standard. Hennessy won the hammer with a distance of 181-7, surpassing his old school record of 175-00, which he set earlier in the season.
Other winners on the men's team were junior Rory Quiller (West Point, N.Y.), who recorded his third consecutive victory in the pole vault (16-3), and senior Adam Goldberg (New Rochelle, N.Y.), who placed first in the 110 hurdles (14.8).
On the women's side, senior Jaime Stitt (Ballston Lake, N.Y.) captured the pole vault (11-3 3/4) while freshman Katie Radzik took top honors in the 5,000 (18:12.9).
