Mike McCadney Wins IC4A Triple Jump to Lead the UAlbany Men to a Fifth-Place Finish

Recommended Posts

Princeton, N.J. – University at Albany’s Mike McCadney was victorious in the triple jump to lead his team’s performance at the 132nd Annual IC4A Outdoor Track & Field Championship at Princeton University’s Weaver Stadium on Sunday, May 18. The Great Danes finished fifth in the team standings with 39 points. The UAlbany women, led by a third-place finish by Jenn Gurrant in the triple jump, finished in a tie for 24th place at the ECAC Championship with 11 points.


McCadney, a junior from Rochester, N.Y., set a school record with his championship effort of 51-feet, 1.75-inches to claim UAlbany’s first triple jump crown in IC4A competition. McCadney became the fifth UAlbany athlete to win an IC4A outdoor title at the Division I level, joining Joe Greene, who captured the 400-meter hurdles in 2006 and 2007, Marc Pallozzi (2007, javelin) and Gered Burns (2005, 800-meters). McCadney, who won the America East title two weeks ago, recorded the ninth-best mark in the region this spring and will compete at the NCAA East Regional in Tallahassee, Fla. on May 30-31.


The men’s 4x100-meter relay team of Jean Juste, Dieuseul Joseph, Torshiro Jenkins and Jeffery Barnes placed third in a time of 41.35 seconds. Joseph, a defensive back on the UAlbany football team, finished sixth in the 100-meter dash finals, as he crossed the line in 10.94 seconds.


At the ECAC meet, Gurrant posted a jump of 41-feet, 7.75-inches to record the second-best performance in school history. Senior Arina Gerasimova finished seventh in the same event with a leap of 40-feet, 7.5-inches, while freshman Tiffany Sprenkels ended up in 17th place with a jump of 38-feet, 7-inches.


UAlbany head coach Roberto Vives was honored by the IC4A Track Coaches’ Association, an organization founded in 1918, for 25 years of collegiate service to the sport. Vives, who has been leading the Great Danes’ track and field program since 1985, was also the women’s head coach at Lehman College and spent a year as an assistant at the City College of New York.

A bit out of order but here are earlier results from the IC4A's.


Princeton, N.J. – Sophomore Luke Schoen finished second in the pole vault to lead UAlbany performances at the 132nd Annual IC4A Outdoor Track & Field Championship at Princeton University’s Weaver Stadium on Saturday, May 17. The Great Danes are in fourth place with 20 points through eight events. The UAlbany women have three points through nine events.


Schoen, who was third at last season’s IC4A championship, placed second by clearing the bar at 16-feet, 10.75-inches. Freshman Michael Dempsey was ninth in the event with a height of 16-2.75. A pair of Great Danes finished in the top-five in the long jump. Sophomore Kyle Nadler (Colonie Central) finished second with an NCAA East Regional-qualifying leap of 24-feet, 4.25-inches, the second-best jump in program history. Classmate Valete Graham was fifth at 23-feet, 11.75-inches.


In the 100-meter dash trials, senior Dieuseul Joseph sprinted to a third-place finish in 10.63 seconds, just three one-hundredths of a second behind Junior Burnett’s school record of 10.60. The performance marked the third-fastest time in the school annals behind Burnett’s 10.60 and 10.61 at the 2007 Albany Spring Classic. In the 4x100-meter relay, Joseph led at quartet that included Jean Juste, Torshiro Jenkins and Jeffery Barnes (Albany High) to a second-place effort in the preliminaries. The relay sprinted a season-best time of 41.00 seconds, just 22 one-hundredths of a second off the school standard.


Freshman Wilfredo de Jesus Elias finished 12th in the hammer throw with a toss of 184-feet, 0-inches. Juste finished ninth in the prelims of the 110-meter hurdles in 14.26 seconds, only one-hundredths of a second shy of qualifying for the finals. Junior Joe Greene finished 11th in the 400-meter hurdles in 52.62, missing the finals by just .27 seconds.


On the women’s side, junior Kamilah McShine finished 10th in the preliminaries of the 100-meter hurdles in 14.11 seconds. McShine improved her time to 14.03 in the semifinals, but finished 11th overall and missed a spot in the championship field.


The Great Danes wrap up competition at the ECAC and IC4A championships on Sunday, May 18, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
