SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (May 6, 2016) – Stonehill College sits in third place in the team standings with two student-athletes earning All-Conference honors on day one of the 2016 Northeast-10 Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships, hosted by American International College, at John G. Hoyt Track & Field Complex today.
Sophomore Anthony Innamorati (Clinton, Massachusetts/Clinton) highlighted the first day for Stonehill by defending his title in the pole vault as he cleared a personal-best height of 15-feet, 1-inch on his second attempt. He cleared 13.11.25 on his first attempt before taking three tries at 14-05.25 before clearing and then slipped past 14-09 on the second attempt before clearing his winning standard, which bests his previous personal best by nearly six inches.
Innamorati led three Skyhawks that scored in the event as freshman Daniel Bomba (Putnam Valley, New York/Iona Prep) placed fourth with a personal-best matching height of 13-05.25 on his first attempt, while sophomore Dillon Neumann (Harwinton, Connecticut/Lewis Mills) finished seventh at the same height of 13-05.25 in two attempts.
