Brado qualifies for DIII national meet

DELHI — The SUNY Cobleskill men’s and women’s track & field program closed out the 2021 regular season over the weekend at the Bronco Weekend Classic hosted by SUNY Delhi. The Fighting Tigers turned in several impressive showings on the track and in the field events at the non-scoring event.

Senior jumper Tyler Brado, (St. Johnsville/Oppenhein-Ephratah-St. Johnsville High School), turned in the top overall performance at the event with an explosive effort in the high jump winning the event by clearing a height of 6-7 to meet the NCAA Division III National Championship Meet qualifying standard. With his effort Brado is currently ranked fifth in the country in the event.

The Fighting Tigers will next be in action when the team’s qualified athletes will compete at the 2021 NCAA Division III Atlantic Regional Championships hosted by St. John Fisher College in Pittsford at the college’s Polisseni Track & Field Complex on May 19 and May 20.
