Syracuse Orange senior Freddie Crittenden III was the top American collegiate finisher in the 110m hurdles at the Penn Relays. Crittenden turned in a time of 13.44, just .02 seconds off his school record, as he finished 2nd behind Ronald Levy of Jamaica. With just two weeks until the ACC Outdoor Championships, Crittenden continues to hold the fastest legal-wind time in the country and last night he earned Male Performance of the Year at the Cuse Awards.
While Crittenden was the only Orange athlete to compete at Penn, a number of Syracuse athletes had successful meets at the Cornell Big Red Invitational on Sunday. Chevis Armstead II won the 110m hurdles and teamed with Kashif Miller, Pascal Bastien, and Winston Lee to win the 4x100m relay. Freshman Aidan Tooker won the 1500m in a time of 3:46.72 with Philo Germano close behind in 3:48.04. Senior Paul Lovell won the 800m in a time of 1:51.85.
For the Orange women, Tia Thevenin won the 100m hurdles in a time of 13.39, which places her 7th on the ACC list. Freshman Aviana Goode took 1st place in the high jump with a clearance of 5’5”.
Adam Palamar (1500m) and Justyn Knight (5000m) will travel to Stanford this week to compete in the Payton Jordan Invitational. Knight was named Syracuse’s Male Athlete of the Year for the second straight year at last night’s Cuse Awards. The rest of the Orange T&F team will be preparing for the ACC Outdoor T&F Championships, which we will preview next week.
