Boston, Mass. - Fred Casimo finished third in the long jump, as the UAlbany men's team has the first-day lead at the 89th Annual IC4A Championship on Saturday, March 6 at the Boston University Track & Tennis Center. Fey Adaramola advanced to the final round in both short sprinting events to pace the women's squad on the opening day of the 27th Annual ECAC Championship, which was being held at the Reggie Lewis Center.

The UAlbany men accumulated 11 of their 15.50 points in the long jump and hold a one-point lead advantage over Manhattan through the first day of action. Casimo's third-place mark was 23-feet, 3.50-inches, while Graham finished fourth after leaping 23-2.75. Wilfredo de Jesus Elias was sixth in the weight throw with a toss that sailed 60-6, and Luke Schoen tied for sixth in the pole vault by clearing 15-9. Pat McNish finished 14th in the long jump in the only women's final of the day featuring a Great Dane. She leaped 17-11.50.

In the preliminary rounds, Fey Adaramola and John Moore challenged school records by registering the fastest marks in their respective events. Adaramola most notably ran a blistering time of 7.56 seconds in the semis of the 60-meter dash, which was .01 seconds off Ellakisha Williamson's record set in 1998. She also advanced to the final in the 200 by navigating the track in 24.58. Moore clocked in at 4:05.63 in the mile, which was only .02 seconds short of Aaron Lozier's program standard recorded last season. Sheena Simpkins was .01 seconds shy of Adanna Andrews' school record in the 500. She circled the track in 1:14.54 to advance to tomorrow's final. In addition, Freddie Wills finished the afternoon second in the heptathlon through four events with 2,945 points, which was only nine behind the leader.

UAlbany had both of its relays on the men's side advance to tomorrow's final round. Anchored by Moore, the men's 4x800-meter relay team navigated the track in 7:37.02. Lozier 1:55.8, Sean Halpin 1:52.6 and Nick Santos 1:51.9 also ran on the relay which turned in the third-fastest time of the day.

The UAlbany men will aim to capture their second straight IC4A crown tomorrow afternoon, while the Great Dane women's program will look to improve on last year's 15th-place showing at ECACs.

Well they did it, the men win again in a thriller. Women with a solid showing too.


Boston, Mass. - University at Albany's Tyler Fogarty won the mile and ran on the victorious 4x800-meter relay squad in leading his team to its second consecutive IC4A indoor track and field championship on Sunday, March 7 at Boston University's Track & Tennis Center. The Great Danes, who edged George Mason by 3.5 points to claim the title, became the first program in 10 years to earn back-to-back crowns at the prestigious event.

UAlbany also earned its highest finish in program history at the ECAC Championship, which was held at the Reggie Lewis Center, by tying for 12th in the team standings. Fey Adaramola, a senior captain, accumulated 14 of her team's 20 points to lead the way by winning the 60-meter dash and finishing fifth in the 200.

"I told the women that they could have their best finish ever, and I told the men that they could defend their championship," said head coach Roberto Vives, who had both of his teams sweep the America East Conference titles for the first time in program history two weeks ago. "You really can't ask for more. Both of our teams really stepped up and did what they had to do. It is really difficult to win a championship meet with over 100 schools, and our men were able to do that."

Just like last year, the IC4A meet came down to the final three relays with UAlbany, George Mason and Cornell all in the running to capture the title. The Colonials pulled ahead of the Great Danes by 2.5 points after finishing third in the distance medley relay, but UAlbany regained the lead it had for most of the meet by winning the 4x800 in 7:28.18. Fogarty led off the relay with a split time of 1:54, while Sean Halpin ran the second leg in 1:53. Nick Santos finished the third leg in 1:50.7, and John Moore anchored the squad with a mark of 1:49.7. The men's 4x400 consisting of Jonathan Santana, Peter Rowell, Jeffery Barnes and Alie Beauvais iced the team title by finishing fourth in a season-best time of 3:11.31.

"We knew we needed to finish higher than third," explained Fogarty on the group's mentality going into the 4x800. "My split time wasn't great, but Sean and Nick stepped it up (on their legs). I have to give John a lot of credit for getting us over the big hump. We were in third, and he came away with the win for us."

UAlbany, which held a one-point lead in the team standings after the first day of action, got a big boost from the middle distance runners who combined to accumulate 16 points in the mile early in the day. Fogarty became the first Great Dane to win an individual event since 2006 by hitting the tape in 4:09.72. Moore crossed the finish line in 4:10.16 to place third.

"John and I definitely worked together to get first and third," explained Fogarty, who was in the back of the pack entering the last lap before making his move on the final turn and winning the event by passing the leader in the final meters. "We both ran personal bests yesterday to advance, and the finals in an event all become practical. My time was nothing spectacular, but what was most important was finishing for the place (and scoring points)."

Nasim Siddeeq, who was named the 2009 USTFCCCA Northeast Region Field Athlete of the Year, was victorious in the triple jump and became the first Great Dane to win a field event at the meet. Siddeeq leaped 51-feet, 0.25-inches, which met the NCAA provisional standard.

Freddie Wills, a team captain, placed second in the heptathlon by scoring a personal-best 5,217 points. He most notably won the high jump, clearing 6-feet, 8-inches, and finished second in the long jump with a mark of 22-1.50. UAlbany also got extra points from Beauvais, who was fifth in the 500-meter dash in 1:03.43.

In the women's meet, Adaramola won the 60 in 7.55 seconds, which matched Ellakisha Williamson's program standard registered in 1998, and placed fifth in the 200 by circling the track in 24.47. Sheena Simpkins, a transfer from Mount Saint Mary's, and Kadine Johnson also scored for the Great Danes. Simpkins placed fifth in the 500 in 1:14.63, while Johnson finished seventh in the weight throw with a toss that sailed 56-3.75.

"This was the best indoor season that we have ever had," added Vives, who is in his 25th season. "Both the men and the women won America East titles, our men earned their second straight IC4A championship and our women had their best finish ever at ECACs. I am really excited about the outdoor season."

Wow - great face by Fogarty. Making up 20 meters at least on the bell lap is amazing!


Congrats to the men for another championship.


McFan - do you know if there is a list of provisional/automatic marks set by UA guys for the indoor nationals - if there is any?

You have got to watch that mile race. Unbelievable where Fogarty came from to win a race with that many quality athletes.




Congrats to both the men and ladies.

Great Indoor year.




Luke Schoen Ranked 20th in the Vault and Nasim Sideeq ranked 31st in the Triple Jump.


Thanks. Hopefully they'll get in the meet. Do you know how many they'll take in the vault and triple? I would imgaine 2 flights in the vault so Luke should have a pretty good chance right?


My nephew is back to the indoor championships after being out last year with an injury. He's an AQ in the Hep. Ashton Eaton has really separated himself from the rest of the multi-event competitors in the country. Hopefully my nephew will be able to close th gap back up this year.

Couple of more vids for those interested.


4x400. A bit anticlimatic as UA wins by time from the second heat.




4x800. Another great finish on this one as Santos and Moore make up some ground on Pitt and Navy.
