New York, N.Y. – Jean Juste reset his own school record in the 60-meter high hurdles and Luke Schoen eclipsed his program standard in the pole vault to pace the UAlbany men's and women's indoor track and field teams at the NYU Fastrack Invitational on Friday, Feb. 27 at the Armory Track and Field Center. Heading into next weekend's IC4A and ECAC championships, the two programs have combined to break school records in 14 different events this winter.


Schoen provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championship and reset his own school record for the third time this winter, clearing 17-feet, 9-inches in the pole vault. Juste recorded a second-place time of 7.96 seconds in the 60-meter high hurdles, bettering his school record of 8.02 last year. After falling short by .01 seconds on two occasions in the event, Garrett Askew qualified for the IC4A championship for finishing fourth in 8.25.


The Great Dane men also had a pair of IC4A qualifying performances in the weight throw, and another in the long jump. Wilfredo de jesus Elias, who broke his own school record in the event earlier this winter, finished second with a toss that sailed 59-2.25. Will Anger recorded a personal-best mark of 58-5.75 which placed him fourth, while Valete Graham fell two inches shy of matching his school record in the long jump. His second-place mark was 24-3.


The women’s team had its best set of performances come in the triple jump. Jenn Gurrant, who has already met the NCAA provisional mark in the event, finished second with a leap of 41-2.50. Tiffany Sprenkels recorded a sixth-place performance of 38-5, bettering the ECAC qualifying mark for the first time this year.
