Dragon sprinter repeats
For the second consecutive week, Oneonta State senior Sean Bernstein was named the SUNY Athletic Conference’s track and field athlete of the week.
Bernstein, who won a national outdoor title in the 200 meters last spring, contributed to three wins Saturday in the Hamilton College Invitational. He won the 60 (6.95 seconds) and the 200 (22.38), and helped O-State’s 800 relay team to a victory in a school-record time of 1:31.44.
Bernstein is ranked first in the SUNYAC in the 60 and is ninth nationally in Division III. Bernstein was an All-American in the event last winter. Bernstein is the defending SUNYAC champion in the 60 and 200.
O-State will compete Saturday at Ithaca College.
Hawks of the Week
Hartwick College selected junior diver Lindsay Bowker and junior basketball player Maria Foglia as its Hawks of the Week.
On Saturday, Bowker won the 1- and 3-meter diving competitions in Hartwick’s 138-99 victory at St. Lawrence. She set a pool record with a score of 249.65 in 3-meter and scored 214.15 in 1-meter.
The next day, Bowker finished second in 1- and 3-meter out of 18 competitors in the Dick Comanzo Invitational at Ithaca College. Her scores of 415.8 and 471.8 in 1- and 3-meter, respectively, met the NCAA Division III qualifying standard.
Foglia averaged 16.7 points as Hartwick won two of its three games last week. She also went 12-for-15 from the free throw line, hit six three-pointers, had eight assists and four steals.
Her three-point play with 17.1 seconds left provided the winning points in Hartwick’s 69-67 win over Stevens and capped a game-high 25-point night.
In a 53-45 loss to Ithaca on Saturday, Foglia scored a game-high 18 points.
