More records and the Men's DMR wins event - 8th overall


over Kentucky, LSU, UConn ...

hiladelphia, Pa. - John Moore and Fey Adaramola each anchored a relay which established a school record to lead the UAlbany outdoor track and field teams at the 116th Annual Penn Relays on Friday, April 23 at Franklin Field. In addition to breaking two program standards, the Great Danes recorded two IC4A qualifying marks on the second day of the annual carnival.

The men's distance medley relay edged out Kentucky to win the college section in 9:43.15, which was also the eighth-fastest time overall behind seven schools from the Pacific-10, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, Southeastern and Atlantic Coast conferences that competed in the Championship of America race. Tyler Fogarty ran the leadoff 1,200-meter leg (2:57.1) and was followed by Jonathan Santana in the 400 (47.5), Nick Santos in the 800 (1:51.9) and Moore (4:07.1), who anchored the squad by running the 1,600. The group, which was given a plaque and medals following the race, broke their own standard of 9:45.71 that they previously set at the Texas Relays on April 3.

The women's 4x200-meter relay squad, which included Alli Rogers, Christen Griffin, Sheena Simpkins and Adaramola, broke the school record by registering a time of 1:39.32. The group bettered last year's mark of 1:39.44, which was posted by Griffin, Tierra Chavis, Jenn Gurrant and Adaramola. By establishing a new program standard for the third straight season at the prestigious event, UAlbany is entered as the first alternate for tomorrow's ECAC Final and will have the option to compete at 2:37 p.m. if one of the top eight schools decides to scratch.

The men's 4x100-meter relay team consisting of four newcomers, including two true freshmen, qualified for tomorrow's IC4A Final by hitting the tape in 41.76 seconds. The time, which was registered by Jake Rachiele, Germain Smith, Earnest Waters and Taylor Chaney, also met the standard for May's IC4A Championship. Four of UAlbany's young and talented short sprinters are slated to compete against Hampton, Georgetown, Temple, Seton Hall, Buffalo, Liberty and Army in tomorrow's IC4A Final at 1:22 p.m.

Fred Casimo led all Great Danes in individual events by placing 10th in the eastern division of the men's long jump. He leaped 23-feet, 6-inches, which eclipsed the IC4A mark. In addition, Peter Rowell and Alan Nimblette ran personal-best times in the men's 400-meter intermediate hurdles. Rowell finished third in the opening heat in 54.03 seconds, which was .19 seconds shy of the IC4A standard. Nimblette, who navigated the track in 54.73, was sixth in the same section.

The UAlbany track and field teams will finish competing at the Penn Relays tomorrow morning and afternoon. In addition, the men's and women's programs will send athletes to the Capital District Classic, hosted by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.


Paw Prints: Tomorrow's final day of action at the 116th Annual Penn Relays is expected to produce a record turnout, as Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man, is expected to take part in the 4x100-meter relay race in the 11th edition of the USA vs. The World Series ... UAlbany is slated to field a men's 4xMile consisting of multiple student-athletes from Capital Region high schools, a men's 4x100-meter relay in the IC4A Final and competitors in the men's triple jump and men's hammer throw.
