J-D girls track handles Fulton, Cortland

Jamesville-DeWitt's girls track and field teams dominated last Wednesday's three-way meet with Fulton and Cortland, but it could only manage a split on the boys side.

In that girls meet, the Red Rams beat the Red Raiders and Purple Tigers by equal 126-15 margins, prevailing in nearly every individual or relay event.

Marae Tearney was first in both the 200-meter dash (27.1 seconds) and shot put (29 feet 5 1/2 inches), a unique double. She also teamed with Amanda Tan, Natalie Mannion and Linsay Royer to win the 4x100 relay in 52.4 seconds.

Mannion was victorious in the long jump (15 feet 4 inches), as she, along with Royer, Katy Pieri and Liz Pieri, ran the 4x400 relay in 4:20.8. Liz Pieri also won the 400-meter dash in 1:04.3.

Eileen Cody earned victories in both the 1,500 (5:16.7) and 3,000 (11:23.4) meter runs, as Paige Morrow needed 2:33.3 to prevail at 800 meters.

Grace Bradshaw, who won the triple jump (32 feet 5 inches), was in the 4x800 relay (10:42.8) with Alanna Wilson, Ameena Dye and Rebecca Doss.

Courtney Ellis took first in the 400 hurdles (1:15.3), with Marissa Colavaecchio clearing 9 feet 3 inches in the pole vault and Maggie Fuller clearing 4 feet 10 inches in the high jump. Brianna Young joined in by throwing the discus 84 feet 8 inches.

J-D, despite fine individual efforts on the boys side, lost a 71-70 nail-biter to Fulton while, at the same time, beat Cortland 113-28.

Bumkuth Jiak earned a win in the mile, finishing in 4:31.5, then took the 800-meter run in 2:04.5. Jiak also helped David Salbert, Max Smith and Tim Kendrick tear through the 4x400 relay in 3:33.6.

Mychal Weekes also won twice, in the discus (130 feet 8 inches) and shot put (44 feet 3 inches), with Salbert adding a triple jump title as he went 42 feet 11 inches.
