Bowen Named America East Field Performer Of The Week

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – University at Albany men’s indoor track and field sophomore Alexander Bowen has been named the America East Field Performer of the Week, announced by the conference office Tuesday.

Aiding UAlbany to a second-place finish out of 24 teams at the Great Dane Classic Friday, Bowen won the high jump title with a leap of 7’0.5”. Bowen is the only athlete in UAlbany history to clear seven feet and has now done it two weeks in a row. The Beacon, N.Y. native cleared 7’1” the week prior at the Nittany Lion Challenge, representing the top jump in the America East this season and the 14th best in the NCAA.

Bowen and the rest of the Great Dane indoor track and field squad are back in action this Friday and Saturday, competing at the Boston University Terrier Classic.
