SUNYAC and regional qualifiers in opening meet
Fredonia State's 2019-20 track and field opener Saturday at Brockport's SERC consisted of the following highlights:
The top finish by a Fredonia State runner was Sarah Buckley. Right behind was Morgan Ashton. They finished second and third, respectively, in the 800 meters. Buckley came in at 2:37.21, just under one second behind the winner. Ashton was clocked in 2:43 flat.
While only three teams were entered in the 4-by-400 meters, Fredonia State finished a close second behind NCAA Division II LeMoyne. The quartet of Buckley, Ashton, Ali Dixon, and Maddie Sohl was clocked in 4:36.31. LeMoyne won the race in 4:34.57.
Twelve women were entered in the high jump with freshman Trinity Tartaro and junior Cassie Serafin finishing second and third, respectively. Both women cleared 1.54 meters (5 feet, one-half inch) but Tartaro, in her first collegiate meet, did so on her first attempt. The height is a SUNYAC qualifier.
Sohl and Serafin were third and fifth, respectively, in the triple jump. Sohl measured out at 10.79 meters (35 feet, 4 ¾ inches). Serafin was two centimeters shorter at 10.77 (35 feet, 4 inches). Both jumps qualified the women for the All-Atlantic Region meet.
