VAN ALSTYNE BREAKS SCHOOL MARK ONCE AGAIN IN FINAL MEET OF 2019
Cortland, NY— The Sage Colleges' women's outdoor track and field team wrapped up action on Thursday at the 2019 All-Atlantic Region Track and Field Conference Championships at SUNY-Cortland. Sage's team is directed by rookie head coach David Taranto and assistant coach Spencer Patterson.
The two-day event wraps on Thursday and the lone Gator in action on the day was junior Skylar Van Alstyne (Castleton, NY/Maple Hill). She competed for the Gators in the shot put and broke the school mark in the event for the fourth time this season. She bettered her previous mark of 10.91 meters as she recorded a throw of 11.06 meters and picked up 20th place.
Van Alstyne, who also competed in the fall as a member of Sage's women's volleyball team, was a newcomer to the track team this spring. Her 2019 season was a banner one as she established school records in the shot put, discus, and javelin. She also earned Empire 8 Track and Field Weekly honors over the course of the season.
