Bowen Garners Third America East Weekly Honor Of The Season

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the third time this spring, University at Albany men’s track and field sophomore Alexander Bowen has been named the America East Field Performer of the Week, announced by the conference office Tuesday.

Already UAlbany’s record holder in the high jump, Bowen (Beacon, N.Y.) had another impressive performance, this time competing at the prestigious Penn Relays. The sophomore cleared 7’2.5” to finish fourth out of 10 competitors in the championship division. Bowen’s leap was a half inch short of his best mark this spring, but would still easily be the best in the America East this season. Coming into the America East Championships, Bowen owns the 10th best high jump mark in NCAA Division I.

Up next, Bowen and the rest of the UAlbany men’s squad will look to capture its 10th America East Outdoor Track & Field Championship title, May 4th and 5th. The Great Danes have won eight consecutive outdoor crowns, dating back to 2005. The championship meet is hosted by Binghamton University in Vestal, N.Y.
