Long awaited, Feldman breaks 400 record again

Brittany Feldman

What Brittany Feldman (Jamestown/Southwestern) hoped to accomplish all season long finally came to pass on Saturday as she broke 58 seconds in the 400-meter dash with a time of 57.56, surpassing her previous school record of 58.11.

Her time, which was also better than her outdoor track and field school record of 57.75, moves her unofficially to No. 15 in the women's NCAA Division III national rankings as of Saturday evening. The top 17 athletes in individual events qualify for national championships in Grinnell, Iowa.

Justyn Haines (Albion/Albion) set a new personal best in the men's pole vault, clearing 4.56 meters. Haines finished third at SUNYAC Indoor Track and Field Championships last weekend, clearing 4.50 meters.

Sawyer Bell (Middletown/Roy C. Ketchum) finished atop the male throwers with a finish of 16.61 meters in the weight throw. Hsin Chin (Pleasant View, N.Y. / Arlington) set a new personal best mark in the same event, finishing right after Bell at 16.51 meters, while Kyle Brown (Hamburg, N.Y. / Hamburg) threw 15.14 meters.

Kyle Collins (Suffern/Suffern) and Zakk Hess (Newark, N.Y./North Rose-Wolcott), competing in the 3,000-meter run, finished with times of 8:31.39 and 8:49.27, respectively.

Feldman and Sarah Couperus (Marion/Marion) cleared the same height of 1.59 meters in the high jump, while Rocky Caparro (Staten Island/Susan E. Wagner) finished in the triple jump at 13.76 meters.
