Feldman sprints onto SUNYAC All-Decade Team
Two-time All-America sprinter Brittany Feldman has been named to the SUNYAC All-Decade Team in Women's Track & Field.
A two-time NCAA Division III All-America in the 400 meters, Feldman graduated as the school record-holder in the 400 meters both indoors and outdoors. She also held school indoor records in the 300 meters, 400 meters, and 500 meters indoors and was part of both 4-by-400 meter school-record relays, plus the indoor distance medley relay. Her name also appears on the Top 10 lists in seven other events.
Hailing from Jamestown, N.Y., and a graduate of Southwestern High School, Feldman broke onto the scene during her freshman year. At her first SUNYAC meet, the 2015 indoor championships, she earned team points by finished sixth in the high jump and seventh in the 400. That prompted Head Coach Tom Wilson to make a bold prediction. "Brittany is just starting out," Wilson said. "She will have a number of records and conference titles under her belt by the end of her career."
By the time she graduated in 2018, she had won three conference individual titles and finished second three other times. She also was part of Fredonia State's historic 4-by-400 victory at the 2015 SUNYAC outdoor championship meet. Teamed with Anna Dambacher, Kim Foltz, and Laura Morrison, Feldman and the others became the first Blue Devil quartet to win the SUNYAC relay championship.
In to her six all-conference individual titles and the relay win, Feldman earned three all-region awards from the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, plus the two All-America certificates in the 400, finishing seventh at both the 2016 indoor and 2017 outdoor national meets. Scholastically, the native of Jamestown, N.Y., and Southwestern High School was named to the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team.
