Landmark Conference Recognizes Schetroma, Woodruff

MADISON, N.J. – Sophomore thrower Ken Schetroma (Elysburg, Pa./Southern Columbia Area) and senior distance runner Alycia Woodruff (West Chester, Pa./West Chester East) both received weekly accolades from the Landmark Conference. Schetroma was named the Outdoor Male Field Athlete of the Week for the second-straight week while Woodruff picked up Female Track Athlete of the Week recognition for the first time during the outdoor season.

Schetroma, who was tabbed the conference’s Indoor Field Athlete of the Year last month, had a pair of top-three finishes for SU at its annual J.T. Invitational. Schetroma captured the shot put title among the event’s 38 competitors with an outdoor-best toss of 14.71 meters, the best mark in the Landmark so far this season. He then went on to take third in the hammer throw with a toss of 43.27 in what is his first season competing in the event.

Including the final three weeks of the indoor season, Schetroma has now been named the Landmark’s Male Field Athlete of the Week five consecutive times.

Woodruff, meanwhile, ran to second-place finish in the 1500 meter run with a time of 4:50.19. She also took fifth in the 800 meter with her time of 2:25.57. Both times are the best in the conference this season and would have ranked her in the top-three in the conference’s 2010 outdoor season.

The men’s and women’s teams travel to the Juniata Invitational on Saturday.
