PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Rider University men’s and women’s indoor track & field teams had a strong showing on Day 1 of the Rutgers Invitational, posting seven first-place finishes. First-place finishers included Karoline Sandvig (West Windsor, NJ/West Windsor Plainsboro South) and Matt Kraemer (Budd Lake, NJ/Mount Olive/East Stroudsburg) in the weight throw, Ashley Berry (Somerset, NJ/Franklin) and David Gaynor (Paterson, NJ/Passaic County Vo Tech) in the shot put, Erik Adamcik (Hampton, NJ/North Hunterdon) in the pole vault, Tyree Adams (Hamilton, NJ/Hamilton West) in the long jump and Christin Patrick (East Orange, NJ/Seton Hall Prep) in the high jump. 

“We had a nice day for the first meet back after the holiday break,” said Rider Head Coach Bob Hamer. “The individual performances may not have been great marks but we competed very well. We won seven events today and that shows that we are very competitive right now.” 

Sandvig won the women’s weight throw with a throw of 15.97 meters as the Broncs swept the 1-4 spots in the event. Kraemer took the men’s weight throw at 15.51 meters, setting a new PR. 

In the shot put, Berry finished first at 13.59 meters as part of a 1-2 sweep for the Broncs. Gaynor took the shot put for the men at 14.69 meters. 

Adamcik won the pole vault, clearing an IC4A-qualifying 4.85 meters. 

“Adamcik was the standout performer today with his pole vault victory,” said Hamer. “He has done a great job this season and he picked up right where he left off in December.”
Adams won the long jump at 6.78 meters, while Patrick cleared 6-4 to take the high jump.

Day 2 events begin at 11 a.m. tomorrow.
