Rider 2nd at Army 4-Way

WEST POINT, NY—The Broncs finished second of four teams at the Army Four Way meet Saturday.  The Rider men finished behind host Army and the Rider women finished behind Lehigh. Manhattan also competed in the meet.

“It was a typical first meet back from break,” said Rider head coach Bob Hamer. “We had some good things and we had some things that we need to work on. Overall I was happy with our competitiveness.”

For the Rider women, sophomore La'tazah Coleman (Middletown, Del./Appoquinimink) won the 200m  in an ECAC qualifying time of 25.17. “La’tazah picked up where she left off last year,” Hamer said.  Last year Coleman set five Ride records (three indoor, two outdoor) as a rookie.

Sophomore Dashana Ransome (Irvington, NJ) won the long jump (18-1.5).

Junior Emily Ritter (Millsboro, Del./Sussex Tech) won the mile (5:09.97). “Emily missed most of the cross country season with an injury and has come back and is doing a great job,” Hamer said.

Senior Treasure Burke (Pennsauken, NJ/Camden Catholic) placed second in the wt. throw in an ECAC qualifying distance of 16.75.

For the Rider men, junior George Solujich (East Windsor, NJ/Notre Dame) won the shot put with an IC4A qualifying distance of 16.03.

Freshman Lamont Higgins (New Brunswick, NJ/St. Joseph) won the 200m (22.34) and placed second in the 400 (49.66), qualifying for the IC4A in both events.

The Broncs compete in the NYU Saturday Shootout January 18 at the NYC Armory. “We’re looking forward to getting back to the Armory, a great facility with great competition,” Hamer said.
