UAlbany women's indoor track&field defend America East title

Boston, Mass. – University at Albany's Brianne Bellon (Saratoga Springs) and Kathryn Fanning, a pair of freshman, powered UAlbany to a successful defense of its title on Saturday at the America East Conference Women's Indoor Track & Field Championships.  The two-day event was held at Boston University's Track and Tennis Center.  The Great Danes scored 206.5 points, the second-highest total recorded at the conference indoor meet.
     Bellon and Fanning each picked up individual championships and led the 4x800-meter relay to victory.  Bellon, who received the meet's most outstanding rookie award, became the first UAlbany athlete in league history to win the 800-meters by running 2:12.31, her best time of the season and the third-fastest in school annals.  Fanning won the 1,000-meter run in 2:53.10, the fourth-best mark in UAlbany history.  She is the first Great Dane to finish first in the race since 2007.  Bellon and Fanning were joined on the winning relay by Jessica Panos and Jonelle White.  The group better the ECAC-qualifying standard by nearly 20 seconds in reaching the finish line in 9:05.67.
     Kadine Johnson, who won the weight throw on the first day, was second in shot put with a toss of 45-feet, 3-inches.  Alli Rogers was edged out at the finish in the 400-meter dash, as she and the winner were both clocked in 56.69 seconds.  Sandy Antenor (triple jump) and Jessica Hunter (500-meters) also recorded second-place showings.  Antenor went over 40 feet for the third time this winter with a mark of 40-08.75.  Hunter, who ran an ECAC-qualifying time of 1:15.26, also led the 4x400-meter relay to a winning performance.  Brittany Eveleth (Watervliet H.S.), Nyree Richardson, Tierra Chavis and Hunter were clocked in 3:51.88.
