    Men's Track & Field
    AMHERST, N.Y. - Daemen College track and field athletes Robert Ralyea (Lockport, N.Y./Lockport) and Toria Williams (Buffalo, N.Y./Medaille College) have been named the Bedore Tours Student-Athletes of the Month for April, 2015.

    Ralyea, a 6-foot, 180-pound junior, took home conference champion honors in the pole vault after winning the event at the 2015 East Coast Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships.  Ralyea cleared 3.50 meters in the pole vault event, establishing a new conference record for the outdoor league meet, bettering the previous mark of 3.20 meters set by Michael Pignotti of Molloy College in 2013.  It was Ralyea's first conference title in the outdoor season; he already owns three-straight ECC pole vault championships during the indoor track and field season.  For his efforts, Ralyea was named a first team All-ECC competitor.

    Ralyea also mustered a seventh-place finish at the ECC meet in the javelin with a long toss of 35.73 meters.  

    Williams, a 5-foot-11 sophomore, also earned first team all-league honors after picking up her second-straight outdoor ECC title in the shot put.  Williams posted a long throw of 11.89 meters to outdistance the second-place effort of Tatyana Calhoun (11.46 meters) of the University of the District of Columbia.  She also finished fourth in the discus (27.85 meters), earning second team All-ECC accolades in that event, while posting a sixth-place finish in the hammer throw (27.00 meters).

    The selections of Ralyea and Williams conclude the Bedore Tours Student-Athletes of the Month program for the 2014-15 academic year.  Selections will begin again in early October for the 2015-16 academic year.
