Liverpool girls track excels at Tully meet

Due to repairs at its well-used home oval, the Liverpool girls track and field team will spend the entire 2007 season competing elsewhere.

That won't keep the Warriors from being a big presence in every meet, including last Wednesday's season-opening Tully Spring Break Invitational.

Two of the three relays went in Liverpool's favor. Emily Coldren, Janeeka Benson, Nachez Brown and Nikki Liadka teamed to take the 4x100 relay in 51.9 seconds, while Miranda McConnell, Alyssa Thomas, Jenna Notar and Skye Borasky worked together to win the 4x400 relay in a time of 4:35.1.

Coldren, on her own, was victorious in the 100-meter dash in 13 seconds flat as Megan Abold and Erika Salen each clocked 14.4 seconds.

Liverpool also swept the distance races. McConnell took the 1,500-meter run (5:11.2), while Trina Bills ran 800 meters in 2:24.9 and Brigid Heenan battled to take the 3,000-meter event in 11:49.7. Heenan's teammate, Lesley Bowers, was third in 12:16.3.

Allison Eagan dominated the pole vault, clearing 9 feet 6 inches to take that event. Jennifer Culp (29 feet 1 inch) and Nikeshia Parker (28 feet 5 1/4 inches) were second and third, respectively, in the shot put as Culp got second in the discus with 81 feet 6 inches and Javannah Forell (76 feet 5 inches) was third.

This came after the Warriors' scheduled opener at Henninger, on April 4, was postponed by weather. Liverpool goes to Baldwinsville on Wednesday afternoon.
