CNS track teams sweep West Genny

Two unique win streaks remained intact as the Cicero-North Syracuse track and field teams swept through West Genesee last Wednesday afternoon.

The girls Northstars were at home against the Wildcats at Bragman Stadium, relying on its domination of field events to prevail by a score of 98-43 and get its 43rd straight league win.

Jasmine Thompson, who ran the 100-meter high hurdles in a top time of 15.9 seconds, claimed the high jump by clearing 5 feet 4 inches and went 16 feet 1 1/2 inches to win the long jump.

Elsewhere, Valerie Langevin threw the discus 115 feet 9 inches and Casey Wilmer tossed the shot put 32 feet 6 inches. Gina Campagna cleared 7 feet 6 inches in the pole vault and Alana Hotchkiss earned first in the triple jump, going 33 feet 6 inches.

Wins proved more elusive in field events, since WG's Katie Bott (400 meters, 400 hurdles, 200 meters) and Carly Graham (800 meters, 1,500 meters) won five times between them.

Still, Schuyler Cary took the 3,000-meter run in 11:31.4. Also, CNS swept the 4x100 (53.7 seconds), 4x400 (4:24.3) and 4x800 (10:05.0) relays as Gina Campagna, Nicole Campagna, Brooke Binion, Katie Kennedy, Katie Laris, Samantha Harvey, Jessica Wheeler, Sarah Dean, Nicole Gilette, Marissa Colburn and Nicole Watterud all helped out.

To the south and west, The CNS boys team went to Camillus and made it 20 straight league wins by handling West Genesee 93-48.

Alex Neumeister won a classic 400 hurdles duel with WG's Jon Richardson, 58.4 to 58.7 seconds, and also teamed with Brandon Marlow, Jake Whritenour and Mike Fiume to win the 4x400 relay in 3:42.5.

Chris Buchanan needed 10:24.8 to prevail at 3,200 meters, long after Whirtenour, Carl Perkins, Jared Walther and Nick Dunbar tore through the 4x800 relay in 8:22.8.

Fiume tore through the 400-meter dash in 51.7 seconds, one of the best Section III times of the season, and was second (22.9 seconds) to WG's Zac Karpinski (22.5 seconds) in the 200-meter dash.
