Edwards, Manning, Horgan highlight All-Time Performances at Indoor Opener

Staten Island N.Y. – The Delaware club track team touched an indoor track for the first time in just under two years on Friday at the Fastrack Season Opener in Staten Island, New York. The last time the team competed in an official team race came in February 2020 at the Happy Valley Invitational. By evening’s end, a total of 13 times and marks made its way onto the indoor all-time list.

In the debut of the sprints and jumps squad, freshman Eli Manning and Brooke Edwards along with sophomore Sam Radinsky all found their way onto the all-time list in more than one event. 

In the long jump, Edwards set a new team record with a mark of 4.44 meters. Brittany Georges held the previous record of 4.17 meters. Edwards doubled-back in the triple jump taking the second all-time spot with a jump of 9.12 meters.

In the 400-meter dash, Manning finished with a time of 1:04.76 putting her just behind Morgan Gallaher, who currently holds the indoor record of 1:03.18. Manning doubled back in the 200-meter dash with a 36th place finish and time of 29.10, which is fourth all-time. Radinsky followed with a 30.68 performance in the 200 meters, good for eighth all-time, while becoming the sixth woman to compete in the 60-meter dash, crossing the line in 8.93 seconds.

Sophomore Andrew Spillane along with the distance trio of Alex Horgan, Bryant Cordova and Sasha Latina would be among the men to earn a spot on the all-time list. Spillane earned his way onto the top 10 list in both the high jump and triple jump with marks of 5.65 meters and 11.73 meters, good for 10th and 6th all-time respectively.

In the 5,000-meter run, Horgan became the sixth men’s distance runner to eclipse the sixteen minute mark in indoor track. Horgan finished with a fourth all-time finish of 15:26.04. Cordova and Latina would both take home the eighth and tenth all-time spots respectively with times of 16:17.49 and 17:06.73.

Two men’s 4×800 meter relays would also find their way into the record books at the ninth and tenth spots with the men’s A team relay edging out the men’s B team by just over three seconds.

Despite being unable to crack the all-time list, multiple Blue Hens showed out in impressive season debuts. Freshman Michael Anderson took home eighth place in the 800 meters with a time of 2:00.84. Paul Filipow dipped under the 4:50 mark in the mile with a time of 4:44.52, while sophomore Daniel Giron broke five minutes by less than a second. 

Alex Horgan is the sixth men’s distance runner to break sixteen minutes indoors.

Paul Filipow awaits the gun for the mile.

Andrew Spillane made it onto the all-time list in both long jump and triple jump.

Sam Radinsky takes out the first 50 meters in her 30.68 200 meter performance.
