Liverpool girls, CNS boys win at Constantino meet

Returning to a familiar theme, the Liverpool girls indoor track and field team bounced back from last Wednesday's defeat at the John Arcaro Invitational to prevail at Monday's George Constantino Invitational at Manley Field House.

With 74 points, Liverpool got back to the top, watching as Cicero-North Syracuse (who won the Arcaro meet)fell back to third place (47 points) behind Fayetteville-Manlius, who again settled into the runner-up spot with 55 points.

Four different times, the Warriors won events. Wannetta Rodney dominated the 55-meter dash, improving her time to 7.21 seconds, with Emily Coldren (7.71 seconds) in third place.

Janeeka Benson was the only girl to break nine seconds (8.84 seconds, to be exact) to win the 55-meter hurdles.

Sara Rothenberg and Emily Chen went 1-2 in the pole vault, each of them clearing 8 feet 6 inches, though Rothenberg did so with fewer misses.

And in the 4x200 relay, Armani Moore, Skye Borasky, Hannah Anthes and Coldren worked together and won in 1:52.08, beating the field by more than a second.

Elsewhere, Jenn Culp threw the shot put 32 feet 5 1/4 inches for second place, while Jennifer Mackenzie took third in the high jump (4 feet 10 inches). Trina Bills finished fifth in the 1,000-meter run (3:09.06) and Brigid Heenan got fifth in the 1,500-meter run (5:09.27).

CNS continued to dominate the boys slate, winning the Constantino meet.

The Northstars got 86 points to flatten the field as Henninger, with 40 points, was far back in second place.

Andy Kahl cleared 6 feet 8 inches in the high jump this time, with Devin Mertens (5 feet 8 inches) again in the runner-up spot.

Craig Barber did a bit worse in the pole vault (12 feet), but still won as Ty Howington needed 8.38 seconds to take the 55-meter hurdles.
