Oneonta State senior Sean Bernstein finished second in the 60 meters Saturday in the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships at North Central College in Naperville, Ill.
Bernstein crossed in 6.84 seconds. Dennis Thurgood of Wisconsin Eau Claire won in 6.76.
Last spring, Bernstein edged Thurgood to win an outdoor national title in the 200.
Saturday’s performance marked the fourth time Bernstein has earned All-America status.
“Sean proved once again that he is a big-meet performer,” Red Dragons coach Matt LoPiccolo said in a media release by the school. “He entered the championships seeded fourth and beat his seed on consecutive days to finish second in the nation.”
Bernstein will now have a couple of weeks to transition into the outdoor season, which begins March 30 at the Division III Commonwealth Duals at Lynchburg, Va.
