PRINCETON, N.J. – Senior Ethan Clary had an outstanding run at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., placing eighth with a personal best 30:17.28 mark in the 10,000m. The performance is the University at Albany men’s second-fastest in school history and is currently the best time in the America East this season.

In addition, with a blitzing time of 34:26.47, junior Brittney Lane shattered the women’s track and field record by nearly 2.5 minutes and won the Olympic Development Elite section of the 10,000m run at the Mt. SAC Relays, April 18th. The performance is also an NCAA preliminary round qualifying mark, currently ranking 20th in the East.

Competing in the prestigious Elite High Jump section along side former World Champions and Olympic medalists, sophomore Alexander Bowen leapt 6’ 11.75”.

Also competing in the field, junior Alfonso Scannapieco won his section of the pole vault, clearing 16’ 10.75”.

Meanwhile, on the East Coast, the rest of the Great Danes competed at the Larry Ellis Invitational on the campus of Princeton University. Sophomore John DeLallo hit an IC4A qualifying mark of 3:47.82 in the Elite 1,500m run, placing seventh overall. Freshman Aderinsola Ajala qualified for ECACs with a 1:01.46 run in the 400m hurdles, as she placed third in the field.

Other highlights included Andrew Pirnie’s third-place run in the 800m with a time of 1:52.58, while Nick Santos placed seventh in the close race with a 1:53.80 mark.

Field highlights included Abel Gilet’s seventh-place discus throw (153’ 7”) and 10th place shot put mark (46’ 10.25”).  In the women’s shot put, Samantha Kosa (43’ 0.25”) and Janice Johnson (42’ 6.25”) finished seventh and eighth, respectively, while teammate T’Sian Haywood placed ninth in the triple jump (37’ 6.5”) and Valeisha Walker came in 10th in the javelin throw with a 125’ 1” toss.
