Senior Sean Bernstein won the 100- and 200-meter dashes in impressive times, and J.D. Roth and Schenevus graduate Patrick Weinert broke school records to lead Oneonta State at the Division III Commonwealth Duals on Saturday at Lynchburg, Va.
Bernstein, the defending NCAA Division III outdoor champion in the 200, won the 100 in 10.65 seconds and crossed in 21.35 in the 200. His 100 time set a meet record and is the second-fastest time by a D-III runner this season. Bernstein’s 200 time is the fastest in D-III thus far.
Bernstein’s teammate, freshman Joe Carr, wasn’t far behind Bernstein. He finished third in the 100 in 10.99 and second in the 200 in 22.06.
Roth set school records in the hammer throw and the shot put. His hammer throw of 173 feet, 2 inches broke Weinert’s school record by 11 feet. It’s also 14th best in D-III this season. Roth put the shot 48-8.
Weinert broke the school record in the discus with a throw of 140-10.
Sophomore Mike Didas and senior Chris Harvey also won events. Didas won the 5,000 in 15:40 and Harvey placed first in the 3,000, crossing in 9:41.46. The Red Dragons went 4-0.
