Sabrina Cammock, 21, who helped set a school record for the 4x100 meter relay in May, was unresponsive when her friends tried to wake her in her bed at about 9:20 a.m. Saturday in the Hotel Edison at 228 W. 47th St. near Eighth Avenue, an NYPD spokesman said.
Cammock, who lived in St. Albans, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

It wasn't immediately clear how she died but she did not show any signs of trauma, police said.
The city's medical examiner performed an autopsy on her body Sunday, but couldn't come to any definite conclusions about the cause of death and ordered more studies, a spokeswoman said.
Cammock, who was majoring in public health, had visited a club with some friends on Friday night, then slept over at the hotel and was found unconscious the next morning, an NYPD spokesman said.
"Sabrina was a wonderful and remarkable person and student-athlete. Our team and coaching staff are devastated," said her Syracuse coach, Chris Fox.
"All our thoughts are with Sabrina's family and friends."
Cammock has been running for Syracuse since her freshman year in 2011 and has posted impressive times since then, according to the school's athletics website.
She ran the 60 meter dash in just under 8 seconds, the 100 meter in 11.82 seconds and the 400 meter in 58.59 seconds, the site said.
She most recently finished 13th in the 60 meter at the ACC Indoor Championships on Feb. 27, according to the athletics site.
