O-State sets records

Oneonta State’s men and women had record-setting Saturdays as the Red Dragons sent split squads to compete at Bucknell’s Bison Classic and at the RPI Invitational.

Charles Remillard placed 22nd in the 5-kilometer run at Bucknell, which featured athletes from divisions I-III, with a program-record time of 14:56.62. Remillard broke the school record he set a year ago at the same meet by 8 seconds.

Mike Didas contributed a personal best in the 5k (15:11.00), which marks the Red Dragons’ fourth-fastest time in program history.

At RPI, Joe Fox broke his school record in the discus with an ECAC-qualifying distance of 156-11 for second place. He also took second in the shot put with an ECAC distance of 49-1.5.

Gilbertsville-Mount Upton graduate Eddie Cotton (100, 11.27), Steve Kuznia (400 hurdles, 56.66), Jake Alviene (110 hurdles, ECAC-qualifying 14.73) and J.D. Roth (hammer throw, personal-best and ECAC-qualifying 184-3) earned victories for O-State.

Alviene also ran an ECAC-qualifying time in the 200 (22.25), which was good for third.

Danielle Kennedy and Alexandria Kober also set program records for the Red Dragons women.

Kennedy broke the 17-minute barrier for the first time in the 5K with a school-record 16:58.49 at Bucknell. Her sixth-place finish ranks her sixth among D-III runners.

Kober had an ECAC-qualifying mark of 17-10 in the long jump at Rensselaer. She broke the 2011 school record of 17-5 set by Michelle Chartrand. Kober also hit the ECAC standard in the triple jump (36-3).
