Oneonta women run into NCAAs


Charles Remillard paced O-State’s men with a 39th as he completed an 8K course in 26:05. Junior classmate Mike Didas had the same time but finished two spots back for Oneonta, which got a 42nd from senior Tom Haskins (26:05.02).

Freshman David Busby (60th, 26:22), senior Mitch Todorov (62nd, 26:26) and junior Bobby Gallant (79th, 26:42) also contributed to O-State’s seventh-place team finish, a program record that is two places better than the Red Dragons did in 2009.

Hartwick College and SUNY Cobleskill also competed at the regional championships.

Monica Prager, a junior, finished 65th in 23:05.2 to lead Hartwick’s women to 777 team points for 28th place.

Matt Loignon had the top men’s finish for Hartwick, placing 70th in 26:34.8. The Hawks’ men placed 24th with 712 points.

Freshman Taylor Tommell set a program record for Cobleskill’s women, finishing in 24:15.1 to place 141st. The North Eastern Athletic Conference champion Fighting Tigers had 1,089 for 34th place in the team standings.

Freshman Evan Quinones placed 20th in 25:37.5 for Cobleskill’s men, who had 712 points to tie for 24th in the team standings. Quinones is the first Cobleskill all-region selection and earned the top NEAC finish at a regional championship event.

On Sunday, Cobleskill announced that Quinones received one of seven at-large berths to the NCAA D-III Championships. The top seven runners in the regional field who are not affiliated with teams that qualify for the NCAAs earn at-large berths. Quinones received the last at-large bid out of the Atlantic Region.
