Binghamton will host the America East Track & Field Championships at the East Gym Complex for the third time in nine years. The two-day event is set to begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. on Sunday.

The women’s team is determined to grab second this year after recording its highest finish since 2002 when it placed third in last year’s meet. The team also narrowly missed second at the indoor championships in February.

The men’s team has earned a top-two finish at each of the previous three conference outdoor championships.

Bearcats to look out for include senior Jessica Hennig, who is defending champion of last year’s 400 event, and junior Camille Ginyard and sophomore Christy DiMichele, who tied for first in pole vault at the recent indoor championships in February. Sophomore Jesse Garn, who placed third in the 1,500 last year and is one of the favorites to take it this year, also has a solid chance of qualifying for the NCAA Regional meet.

Albany’s men and women took last spring’s outdoor championship.
