With the trio of Chris Stogsdill, Matt Weeks and Mike Quercia on hand, the Marcellus boys track and field team took charge in its rivalry against Skaneateles.

As for Weeks, he needed 15.9 seconds to win the 110-meter high hurdles and won the 400 hurdles in 1:00.1 before winning the triple jump, going 38 feet 11 inches.

Quercia did his usual work in the sprints, as he won the 100-meter dash in 11 seconds flat and ran the 200-meter dash in 22.3 seconds, his best of the season. Also, in the high jump, Quercia prevailed by clearing 5 feet 6 inches.

Mracellus won two of the three relays, as Stogsdill, Tom Riccardi, Kyle Blackmer and Jesse Garn ran the 4x800 in 8:46.1 and Quercia helped Sam Schneider, Taylor Carlic and Kevin Daily win the 4x100 in 45.9 seconds. Dan Knickerbocker cleared 10 feet 6 inches in the pole vault as Zach Wiley won the shot put with a toss of 39 feet 4 inches.

The girls meet at Skaneateles went in the Lakers' favor, though, as it rolled past Marcellus 114-27 and also beat J-E 98-42 despite Katie Darling's big show on the Eagles' behalf.

Christie Barnett gave the Lakers a win in the 100-meter high hurdles (17.9 seconds) and held off J-E's Lyndsay Hollis, 1:07.6 to 1:07.8, in the 400 hurdles. Victoria Sakal took the 100-meter dash (13.1 seconds) as Julie Dmochowski prevailed at 400 meters in 1:01.1.
