The men’s track and field team hosted the Ithaca College/SUNY-Cortland Invitational Tuesday in Cortland, N.Y., almost a month after the meet was postponed from its original date of March 26th because of snow.

Among the Bombers’ best performers of the day was Brian Turnbull, who finished second in the 100-meter dash in 11.94 seconds, third the 200-meter dash in 23.99 seconds and third in the javelin with a throw of 47.99 seconds.

The Bombers also received strong performances from senior Chris Stahlmann, who finished second in the high jump with a jump of 1.83 meters and sophomore Ian Tapler, who finished second in the 400-meter hurdles in 58.54 seconds and third in the 110-meter hurdles in 16.60 seconds. Senior Kevin Hurley also finished third in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:01.69 and sophomore Ian Kelley finished third in the discus with a throw of 40.19 meters.
