ECU, Staff reports

Friday, June 8, 2018

Galissia Cause already was the East Carolina record holder in the outdoor shot put and she ended her collegiate career Thursday night in All-America fashion, placing 10th in the shot put event at the NCAA Outdoor Championships held in Eugene, Ore. Taking 10th place garnered her second-team All-America honors.

Cause, a senior, is the first All-American for the ECU track and field program since Avion Jones was a first-teamer in the high jump in 2016.

She recorded a mark of 16.72 meters on her second attempt to clinch her national 10th-place finish. She ended her career as a four-time NCAA East preliminary qualifier as well as this year’s American Athletic Conference discus champion.

The Pirates’ other competitor at the NCAA championships was also a senior — Stefano Migliorati — and he finished in 20th in the 800-meter run.

He crossed the finish line in a time of 1 minute, 51.68 seconds to place seventh in his heat. Only the top two times from each heat as well as the next two best times advanced to the finals.

Migliorati won three AAC titles in the 800m (2017 indoor and 2017/2018 outdoor) during his career and exits ECU as the school record holder in both the indoor and outdoor 800m events. He also qualified for the NCAA East preliminary meet during his junior and senior seasons.

Stanford was leading the women’s team standings in Eugene, Ore., on Friday and Georgia was in first place for the men. The championship meet concludes Saturday.

The go-to saying for East Carolina basketball coach Joe Dooley regarding forward Seth LeDay is that LeDay is the best fast-twitch player for the Pirates this year.

One thing that stands out with first-year coach Joe Dooley about the East Carolina basketball team’s big men is their potential.

The Pirates are not going to overpower many teams in the post — they’re tallest player is 6-foot-9 freshman Rico Quinton — and they are young, but…

It was easy to think back to East Carolina football’s successful run in Conference USA during Saturday night’s game against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

The first reminder was Houston being the visiting team. The Cougars occupied the same visiting sideline Dec. 5, 2009, for a…
