Strong weekend for track and field heading into championships

Cat Jamison, Contributing Writer

This past weekend in Lewisburg, the Bison men’s and women’s track & field completed their regular season with flying colors. Both teams won multiple events in their final tune-up for the Patriot League Championships. 

Robert Feeney ’24 placed second in the weight throw with a 57-10.25. This landed him on the Bison record books, placing him eighth all-time.

“This past weekend’s meet was a great opportunity for a lot of the team to get a chance to improve and compete at our home facility. There was a ton of energy, especially for my event, the weight throw. Coming off a strong meet in the same place as our league championship will definitely help with confidence going into this weekend. I think a lot of our team is peaking at the right time and we should be able to make some noise against Army and Navy – who traditionally dominate the league,” Feeney said.

Cameron Sloan ’23 placed third overall, earning an IC4A qualifier in the 200. Quinn McCutcheon ’25 had a personal best of 4:24.18 for the mile, placing him second.

Meanwhile, Kameron Schreffler ’24 caught second in 60m hurdles with a career-best of 8.48. Jaden Rouse ’22 won the triple jump (43-01.50), while Anthony Zamarra ’23 had a win in the shot put (54-08.00) contributing to an overall successful day for the Orange and Blue.

Reigning Patriot League Rookie of the week Anna Posh ’25 grabbed first in the 500 with a 1:16.81 and second was grabbed by Karly Forker ’22 (1:17:01), both qualifying for ECAC. The Bison triumphed in the 400 as well with a 58.46 time by Mackenzie Turner ’23 beating Lehigh’s second-place finisher by 0.39 seconds. 

Karen Hull ’24 posted the second-best time in 60m hurdle school history. Her (8.75) time was the second .07 seconds shy of the record set in 2018 by Kafilat Oladiran ’18.

Karly Renn ’25 also posted the second-best pole vault mark in school history, tying her with Angie Hall’s record in 2005. Renn (12-3.50) and Jennifer Scott ’23 (11-11.75) went 1-2 in the pole vault. 

The Orange and Blue leaped into first and second as Gianna Macones ’22 (18-09.75) placed first and Lila Gaughan ’24 (18-3.75) placed second. The Bison also earned a second-place finish in the 3000 with a 10:42.74 time from Laura Sakol ’24. 

Lastly, the Bison earned a win in the shot put with Abby Whitaker ’22 posting a meet-best 44-01.50, followed by Siobhan O’Sullivan ’24 second-place 43-5.

This weekend (Saturday, Feb. 26 and Sunday, Feb. 27) the university will host the 2022 Patriot League Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Gerhard Fieldhouse and the events will be broadcasted on ESPN+.
