Bearcats open strong at Colgate Invitational

 

HAMILTON, N.Y. - Binghamton's cross country teams enjoyed success at the season-opening Colgate Invitational on Saturday, with the women's team placing five runners in the top-10, and the men putting three in the top-10.

Sophomore Lindsey Bohrer-Yardley (Oneida, N.Y.) captured the individual title, covering the 6,000 meters in 24:03 to beat 30 other runners. In the process, she shaved 57 seconds off her time from a year ago, drawing praise from head coach Annette Acuff.

"Lindsey took it out hard right from the gun, led the whole way and never looked back," Acuff said. "I was extremely impressed with her performance."

Acuff's young lineup followed Bohrer-Yardley in a tight pack. Four freshmen rounded out BU's scoring. Erin Yaichuk (Groton, N.Y.) finished fourth in 24:58, Stacy Kramer (Loudonville, N.Y.) was sixth (25:27), Allison Furey (Smyrna, N.Y.) was seventh (25:33) and Jessica Goldshlager (Long Beach, N.Y.) crossed ninth in 26:01.

In the dual meet scoring format, BU defeated Niagara (10-26), Le Moyne (10-26), and Oswego (10-26).

On the men's side, senior Kellen Wadach (Ithaca, N.Y.) led the way, placing third out of 36 runners. Wadach covered the 7,800-meter course in 27:14. Sophomore Sergey Shteyn (Staten Island, N.Y.) placed fifth in 27:41, followed by freshman Prahlad Genung (Afton, N.Y.), 9th in 28:14, senior Bobby Heytota (Bayport, N.Y.), 10th in 28:18, and sophomore Dan Jordy (Hopewell Junction, N.Y.), 12th in 28:38.

"Kellen ran a great race," Acuff said. "He went out hard and hung in there. Overall, our men's times were similar to last year, which is a promising start to the season."

The men defeated Niagara (10-26), Le Moyne (12-24) and Oswego (12-24), losing only to the host Red Raiders (13-23).

The Bearcats will next run in the Syracuse Orange Classic on September 21.
