Bernstein’s record came at the Bison Classic and stood for about 20 minutes as sophomore teammate Charles Remillard ran a 15:04.36 in the next heat.

The times for Bernstein and Remillard marked two of 11 personal-bests for the Red Dragons, who received Eastern College Athletic Conference-qualifying times from Chris Harvey and John Longo in the 3,000 steeplechase (9:25.80 and 9:50.96, respectively).

Schenevus graduate Patrick Weinert highlighted the O-State men’s performances at the Upstate Classic with a program record of 178 feet, 6 inches to win the hammer throw and qualify for the Penn Relays next week. Weinert also placed fourth in the shot put.

Former record-holder J.D. Roth contributed an ECAC-qualifying distance in the shot put (48-6.75).

Sean Bernstein won the 100 (10.63) and the 200 (21.29). Those times rank fourth and second, respectively, among NCAA Division III sprinters.
