    VanDalen one of the many standouts for Track and Field

    At the Giegengack Invitational this weekend, senior Lucy Van Dalen broke records in the 1,000m and the Seawolves qualified for Eastern Conference Athletics Championships (ECAC) and two for the IC4As.
    Van Dalen, from Waganui, New Zealand, finished in 2:42.53 — the fastest time in the country this season.
    She set a new Stony Brook record by nearly five seconds and a new meet record by nearly six seconds.
    The ECACs and IQ4As are the women’s and men’s outdoor track and field championships, respectively.
    They will be held at Princeton University in New Jersey on May 11-13.
    Sophomore Olivia Burne,  junior Annie Keown and senior Carolina Cortes qualified for ECACs.
    Burne took first place in the mile with a time of 4:47.32, while Cortes took third at 4:48.48.
    Keown placed second in the 3,000m, finishing in 9:52.03.
    Senior LaQuashia Hall  and junior Lorraine McCarthy  also put in top-five wins for the Seawolves. Hall finished the 500m in 1:17.91, placing fourth. McCarthy finished the mile in 5:04.74.
    Only one male runner for Stony Brook placed first, sophomore Eric Speakman. He won the 1,000m in 2:24.86 and missed breaking the SBU record by 0.18 seconds.
    Senior Shamell Forbes  finished fourth in the 1,000m, and sophomore Daniel Denis  placed fifth in the 3,000m. Forbes finished in 2:29.50. Denis’ time was 8:37.24.
    Freshman Terry Martin had a time of 8.41 in the 60m hurdles.
    The men’s 4×400 relay team finished in fourth place, with a time of 3:22.30.
    They will be running at the world famous Millrose Games at the Armory in Manhattan — along with teammate Van Dalen — next week, while another group will go to the Valentine Invitational in Boston, Mass.
