College Teams Finish Strong at Corporate Challenge

 College Teams Finish Strong at Corporate Challenge

07/22/2014 

The official results are in and SUNY Cortland again finished strong at the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge in Syracuse, with the College’s four-person men’s team placing first overall and its women fifth.

For the second time in three years, SUNY Cortland will be represented at the international championship race at a location to be determined in 2015. Both the SUNY Cortland men’s and women’s squads competed at the championship race in Rochester, N.Y., in 2013.

The companies producing top times across men’s, women’s and co-ed divisions in 13 cities — 156 runners in all — receive an expenses-paid trip from J.P. Morgan Chase to the championship.

The College’s men’s team ran the fastest four-person time overall, 1:24:01, at the 3.5-mile event on June 17. The group included: John Aerni-Flessner, assistant professor of history; Joshua Henry ’09, M ’11, assistant coach of cross country and track and field; Michael Bersani, assistant director of public relations; and Hugh Anderson, study abroad advisor in the International Programs Office.

The fifth-place women’s group included: Julie Barclay, lecturer of geology; Jillian Tucker, senior admissions advisor; Pam Sullivan, interim budget officer; and Theresa Curtis, associate professor of biological sciences.

More than 50 faculty and staff members ran and walked for SUNY Cortland’s team on a sweltering Tuesday evening in 2014. Kerry Mincher and Christopher Tucker ’01 organized the College’s efforts this year with assistance from Brenda Chaffee, Melissa Fox, Jillian Tucker and Murphy’s Complete Catering, which supplied the food.

It marked the eighth year SUNY Cortland has participated in Central New York’s most popular corporate fitness event.
