Cornfield places 5th at nationals
Corning’s Jared Cornfield finished a brilliant indoor track and field career in style Sunday.
Competing at the national scholastic indoor track and field championships at the Armory, Cornfield earned All-American status by placing fifth in the mile with a new district-record time of 4:18.04.
Cornfield broke his own record in the mile by a little more than five seconds (4:23.4). Cornfield is the Corning indoor track team’s first All-American since Albert Johnson two years ago.
“It was a great way for Jared to end his indoor career with us with All-American status,” said Corning head coach Chris Wise.
Corning’s Steve Rossettie finished 25th in the freshman mile with a time of 4:55.29, while the Hawks’ Mia Bates placed 30th in the 7th-8th grade mile in 6:12.43.
