Hess sets men's indoor 3,000 record

Fredonia senior Zakk Hess (Newark, N.Y./North Rose - Wolcott) set a school indoor record in the 3,000 meter run Saturday while competing at Cornell.

Hess rounded the Barton Hall oval in 8:30.03 to take down Kevin Rumsey's 1983 record of 8:30.24. In addition to Rumsey, Hess overtook six other runners on the all-time list. He came into the meet at No. 8 with a previous personal-best of 8:40.87 last December.

The new school record time took place at the Marc Deneault Invitational, a 30-team event.

Meet highlights on the women's side included:

A clearance of 11' 3.75" in the pole vault by freshman Julia Schreier (Lockport, N.Y./Starpoint). It was a personal-best for Schreier and put her at No. 2 on the Fredonia women's indoor all-time pole vault list. Atop the list is Schreier's teammate, freshman Kristen Sawyer (Lockport, N.Y./Lockport), at 11' 4.24" from earlier this season.

Two throwers set personal-records in the 20-pound weight throw: senior Nicole Desens (Hopewell Junction, N.Y. / Arlington) at 14.62 meters and junior Brianne Paganello (Batavia, N.Y./Batavia) at 12.52 meters.
