Hosted by the Stony Brook Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Black Student Athlete Huddle, about 200 attendees and students came together to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Friday was a historic day for Stony Brook Track and Field at the Fastrack National Invitational, as sophomore mid-distance runner Luke Coulter of the Men’s team broke the program record for the 800 meter race with a time of 1:52.44. “Luke was certainly the star of the day, he ran a perfect tactical race, positioned himself well throughout the race and ran confidently to the finish line,” head coach Andy Ronan said in a press release.
“The guys competed very well today, taking seventh out of 23 teams, with 5 of the 6 teams in front of us ranked in the top 30 in the Nation,” head coach Andy Ronan said in a press release. “It’s early season but I felt it was important for us to run well against our regional opponents. Finishing in front of Dartmouth, Boston University and Providence was encouraging at this stage.”
