Vaulter, freestyler receive SUNYAC honors

Mikayla Capestrani and Graham Jones

Two Fredonia student-athletes were cited Monday for their efforts in weekend meets.

Senior pole vaulter Mikayla Capestrani (Jamestown/Jamestown) was named SUNYAC Women's Indoor Field Athlete of the Week. Men's freestyle specialist Graham Jones (Tonawanda/Kenmore East) was named SUNYAC Men's Swimmer of the Week.

Capestrani was cited for breaking Fredonia's indoor pole vault record at Saturday's Tiffin Dragon Grand Prix, moving her current ranking to 22nd nationally in NCAA Division III. She cleared 11 feet, 7 3/4 inches (3.55 meters), four inches higher than her previous personal-best, and two inches higher than the previous school record. The Blue Devils will travel to Ithaca to compete in the Mark Deneault Invitational this Sunday, hosted by Cornell University.

Jones celebrated his own Senior Day by winning three freestyle races Saturday vs. Cortland. He had with wins in the 200-yard freestyle (1,48.11), the 500-yard freestyle (5:05.17), and the 1,000-yard freestyle (10:29.11). Jones and his teammates have begun preparing for the SUNYAC championship meet starting next Wednesday, February 20, at the Flickinger Center in Buffalo.
