Indoor Track Champions

Recommended Posts



Boston, Mass. – University at Albany’s Gered Burns won the 1,000-meter run in a school-record time and was a member of the winning 4x800-meter relay, as his team won its second consecutive indoor conference title at the America East Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships. Albany scored 140.50 points to win the crown on Saturday, Feb. 21 at Boston University’s Track and Tennis Center. The Great Danes came from behind to defeat Northeastern, who was second with 128.50.


Burns went 2:26.50 in the 1,000 to break the previous school standard by more than one second. He also ran the anchor leg on the first-place 4x800 relay that also set a UAlbany mark with a time of 7:39.67. Sam Gonzalez, Noel Campbell and Rich Villanueva were also members of a team that eclipsed the old record of 7:43.51 set two years ago.


Kamar Elliott, a defensive back on the UAlbany football team, became the team’s third individual champion when he leaped a personal-best 49-feet, 3-inches in the triple jump. His jump was just one-and-a-half inches off the existing school record, and beat the field by exactly three feet. Fred Frese and Naron Stewart picked up second-place finishes in the heptathlon and high jump, respectively. Paul Roche, who won the long jump on the first day, placed second in the 55-meter hurdles (7.67) and fourth in the heptathlon.


In the women’s competition, Albany finished second in the team standings to champion Northeastern. The Great Danes, who totaled 128 points, were third in this championship last year. Jennifer Aubin broke her own school standard in the winning the triple jump with a leap of 40-feet, 1.75-inches. Aubin, who was second in this event in 2003, was fourth in the long jump on Friday evening.


Teresa Covert, who became the first UAlbany athlete to qualify for the NCAA outdoor championships last spring, was second in the 55-hurdles (8.04) and fourth in the 55-dash (7.19). Diane Matthews set a UAlbany record in the 800-meter run, as she finished third in 2:13.59. Alyssa Lotmore, Tequirra Cox and Joy Williams were also third in the 1,000-meter run, 200-meter dash and shot put, respectively.
