Ridley Leads Broncos at Ithaca


The SUNY Delhi Track and Field team traveled to Ithaca College for the annual Tuesday Quad Meet.

Leading the way for the Broncos was junior Zhane Ridley, who posted her best ever outdoor performance in the high jump.  Ridley cleared 1.57m (5' 1.75") which was good enough to tie her for first place.  In the subsequent jump-off, Natalie Meyer of Ithaca College cleared before Ridley to place first with Ridley second.  Ridley also placed sixth in the javelin throw (22.75m, 74' 8").  Also placing second for the women was freshman Kelcey Watson in the pole vault with a clearance of 3.35m (10' 11.75").

The top performance for the men came from the 400 meter relay team of Ronald Ack, Arto Nadeau, Akeem Daley, and Keron Phillip.  The team placed second overall with a time of 47.32.  The top individual finish for the men came from freshman Ryan Roosa.  He placed fourth in the long jump with a leap of 5.84m (19' 2").

The Broncos will be represented Friday at Penn Relays by Walter Briggs and Keimon Barrow and will host the first annual USCAA National Invitational and the NJCAA Region III Championships at SUNY Delhi on Saturday.
