UAlbany wins 6th America East Indoor Track&Field title

Boston, Mass. – University at Albany's Kareem Morris (Albany H.S.) led a group of four individuals who won conference titles on the second day of competition at the America East Conference Men's Indoor Track & Field Championships, held at Boston University's Track and Tennis Center on Saturday afternoon.  The Great Danes captured their sixth consecutive indoor championship with 184 points. Binghamton (157) and Boston University (141) were second and third, respectively, in the standings.
     Morris, a freshman, became the first UAlbany athlete to win the 200-meter dash in four years by sprinting a career-best 21.74 seconds and placed fourth in the 60-dash.  Morris, who bettered his IC4A standard with the performance, was also second in the long jump on the first day with a leap of 22-feet, 11.75-inches.  He received the Coaches Award for scoring the most points at the meet.
     Peter Rowell (Scotia-Glenville) ran 1:03.40, his top time of the season, to win the 500-meter dash after the junior finished seventh in this event at the conference meet one year ago.  Rowell also anchored the third-place 4x400-meter relay to a season-best 3:14.80, earning a place among the IC4A qualifiers. Nick Santos (Colonie Central) was first in the 800-meter run as he hit the tape in 1:50.96, the fifth-fastest time in program history.  Tristan Akong claimed the 60-meter dash crown with a time of 6.88 seconds.  UAlbany had six individual champions overall, as Wilfredo de Jesus Elias (weight throw) and Fred Casimo (long jump) recorded victories on Friday.
     In addition, Paul Lagno broke his own school record in the 3,000-meters. His time of 8:18.00 was good enough for fourth place.  Greg Kiley (Saratoga Springs), who ran the lead-off leg on the winning distance medley relay the previous day, took second in the 1,000-meters.  He ran 2:25.83 to qualify for the IC4A meet.
