Character of a Champion
Jenn Suhr showed what it takes to be a Champion this weekend at the New Balance Grand Prix in Boston. A week ago, Jenn was unable to clear her opening height in what was sure to have been a disappointing way to start the season. Champions don’t let that affect them very long. Get back to work, figure out what went wrong, fix it and move on. Saturday, Jenn returned to Boston and the Reggie Lewis Arena where she has found plenty of success over the years. With an easy clearance at her opening height this weekend, the monkey was off her back. The second height was not as easy bringing a change of poles and three attempts to clear the bar. Jenn had won the competition and had the bar raised to set a new American record. Tapping into her inner champion, Jenn made quick work of the 4.88 meter height. By breaking her own best indoor height becoming the first American to clear 16-0 feet, Jenn solidifies she has the character of a champion to come back one week later and win in dramatic fashion.

6-8-2009 Kyle Heath Named Northeast Division Men's Track Athlete of the Year
Syracuse University senior steeplechase runner Kyle Heath, of Farmington, was named Men’s North east Division Track Athlete of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. "It is a great honor to receive an award that is given out to only a select group," Heath said. "It's weird to think that this is the end of the road at Syracuse and this weekend marks my final competition for the Orange. I know that I won't win every award, but I tried to do everything I could to make Syracuse a place prospective distance runners want to come to and make a name for themselves." Heath will be competing in the steeplechase at the 2009 Division I Outdoor Track and Field NCAA Championship at the University of Arkansas, on June 10th.
