Track Hornets sweep past Auburn

Moving to a quick 3-0 mark in the CNY Counties League American division, the Fayetteville-Manlius track and field teams both handled Auburn last Wednesday afternoon.

In the girls Hornets' 102-39 rout of the Maroons, Jess Marini pushed her way to first place in the 400-meter dash in 1:01.2 and also won the 400 hurdles in 1:06.8. In the 4x400 relay, Marini, Natalie Alibrandi, Audrey Wallace and Heather Martin prevailed in 4:28.2.

Katie Sischo teamed with Mackenzie Carter, Colleen Mulvihill and Hannah Luber to take the 4x800 relay in 10:41 and, on her own, Sischo won the 1,500-meter run in 4:55. Courtney Chapman prevailed at 3,000 meters in 10:44.5 and Gennie Ariotti took her turn in the 800-meter run, winning in 2:37.

Erika Davin cleared 4 feet 10 inches in the high jump, while Tammy Gould won the discus (69 feet 4 1/4 inches) and Jhoville Pommells tossed the shot put 29 feet 11 inches. Isabel Carapella stepped up and took the 100-meter high hurdles in 18.1 seconds.

Though the boys meet proved a bit less lopsided, F-M still had enough room for a comfortable 89-52 victory over Auburn.

Alex Hatz ran the mile under 4:30 -- in 4:29.3, to be precise -- and covered 800 meters in a comfortable 2:10 after helping Jon Cico, Ben Sargrad and Joe Hartnett take the 4x800 relay in 9:18. Brendan Farrell won the 3,200-meter run (10:26.1).

Chris Ruggeri prevailed twice, in the 110-meter high hurdles (17.5 seconds) and triple jump (37 feet 11 inches), as Mike Matonse, Almir Alemic, Ryan Jones and Jon Leavitt took the 4x100 relay in 47.5 seconds.

Karl Thompson took over in throwing events, prevailing in the shot put (46 feet 6 inches) and tossing the discus 122 feet 4 inches. Auburn, in defeat, saw Matt Clark win the 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash and long jump.
