LEWISBURG, Pennsylvania -- Two school records and two IC4A qualifiers capped a weekend filled with milestone performances, as the Marist College men’s track team competed at the Bucknell Bison Outdoor Classic, held Friday and Saturday at Christy Mathewson Memorial Stadium on the campus of Bucknell University.

The Red Foxes’ 3,200-meter relay team punctuated the highlight-filled meet with a thrilling first-place finish in a school-record and IC4A-qualifying time. The team of Brian Henderson (1:54.7), Andrew Burns (1:53.4), Steven Morrison (1:52.2) and Stefan Morton (1:56.7) stormed to first place in 7:37.37, eclipsing the four-year-old mark of 7:39.27 and surpassing the IC4A qualifying standard of 7:43.00.

Earlier in the meet, other highlights included:

--Senior Joe Cafaro broke the two-year-old school record in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles, placing seventh in 54.93 seconds.

--Senior Stefan Morton earned an IC4A qualifying mark in the 1,500-meter run for the second consecutive spring, finishing in a career-best time of 3:56.02.

--Sophomore Palmer Weimann became the 26th distance runner in school history to eclipse the 15-minute barrier for 5,000 meters, placing fifth in the unseeded division in a time of 14:53.61. This vaults him immediately to 18th place on the all-time list.

“Bucknell is one of the best meets on our schedule all year, and the men took full advantage of the excellent competition the meet affords,” head coach Pete Colaizzo said. “We are pleased with their efforts and their results.’’

The track team returns to action on Saturday at the Wolfie Invitational at Stony Brook University.
