B'ville boys track beats Liverpool, moves to 2-0

At least for the moment, move the Baldwinsville boys track and field team to the top in the CNY Counties League National division.

The Bees earned a tie with Cicero-North Syracuse for that top spot during last Wednesday's meet against Liverpool at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, fighting its way past the Warriors 81-60.

Three different times, Sean Bernstein took individual titles. He claimed the 100-meter dash in 10.9 seconds, beating teammate Rudy Sapp by half a second, and also rolled in the 200-meter dash as he won in 22.8 seconds.

Bernstein also cleared 5 feet 8 inches to win the high jump and, in the 4x100 relay, teamed with Sapp, Todd Mitchell and Parker Kiff for a first-place clocking of 45.0 seconds.

As that went on, Kyle Rogers was winning the long jump, going 19 feet 7 inches, as an addition to his winning the 400-meter dash in 52.6 seconds. He also helped the Bees' 4x400 team post 3:40.9, just behind Liverpool, who won in 3:38.5.

B'ville flourished in field events, where Brian Kane went 39 feet 1 inch in the triple jump, Alan Gribble won the pole vault (8 feet) and Matt Getman tossed the discus 125 feet 2 inches.

In other close calls, Nathan McCabe finished second in the mile (4:34.2), with Adam Pacheck third in both that event and the 3,200. Tim Chambers (2:02.1) nearly beat Liverpool's Alex Wilke (2:01.8) at 800 meters as Kyle McCaleb finished second in the 110-meter high hurdles in 15.9 seconds.

A day earlier, the B'ville girls team met Liverpool and found points difficult to obtain in a 110-31 loss to the Warriors.

Nicole Fecco did sneak in and take first in the 800-meter run in 2:27.7. She joined Jaime Balloni, Ashley Shaheen and Kristina Sprague to take the 4x800 relay in 10:10.

Liverpool won every other event, as stars like Wanetta Rodney (100-meter dash, 12.8 seconds) and Trina Bills (400-meter dash, 1:01.2) stood out.
