Men’s Track And Field Has Strong Performance At Penn Relays

PHILADELPHIA – Competing alongside the nation’s best for three days in the world’s oldest and largest relay meet, the University at Albany men’s track and field team had a strong outing at the 119th edition of the Penn Relay Carnival.

Senior Ethan Clary qualified for the IC4A Championship with a personal best time of 14:35.06 in the Olympic Development 5,000m race. The mark was good for sixth place in the 26-person field. 

Sophomore Alexander Bowen was also a highlight, placing fourth out of 10 in the Championship High Jump with a 7′ 2.5″ bound.  In the College Long Jump, Stephen Crouse also placed fourth, leaping 23’ 3.5”, which qualifies the graduate student for IC4As.

The men’s 4 x 800m relay team, consisting of John DeLallo, Nicolas Santos, Andrew Pirnie, and Youness Benzaid ran the top time in the America East Conference and placed fifth out of 33 schools with a mark of 7:30.45.

The 4 x 200m relay team was also solid, as Donald Williams Jr., Taariq Jones, Winston McCormack Jr., Alex Petit-Frere ran a 1:27.41, placing seventh, in the IC4A Final.

UAlbany also competed in the Capital District Classic, hosted by RPI, this weekend. The Great Danes had five event titles won. Jake Rachiele (22.51) won the 200m dash, Charles Karam (50.63) placed first in the 400m, Aliaksandr Leuchanka (4:01.78) won the 1500m run, and Shane Wagner took the 400m hurdles title (54.55). In addition, the 4x400m relay squad with Ryan Jones, Dylan Lowry, Diamere Nabinett, and Zachary Cook ran a top-time of 3:26.54.
