A trio of local indoor track and field teams strung together some victories during last Saturday's CNY Indoor Track Association Christmas Relays at Hamilton College.

On the girls side, Jamesville-DeWitt finished third, with 66 points, while Fayetteville-Manlius took fourth place with 47 points and CBA (30 points) tied for fifth. Liverpool (76 points) edged Cicero-North Syracuse (75 points) for the team title.

J-D saw Natalie Mannion (45.10 seconds) and Linsay Royer (45.35 seconds) claim the top two times in the 300-meter dash as the Red Rams won in 1:30.45.

Marae Tearney had the top indiviual shot put toss of 33 feet 6 inches as she and Sierra Vasiliou finished second overall (63 feet 7 inches). Amanda Tan and Danielle Doss got second in the triple jump with 57 feet 5 1/2 inches.

Tearney and Vasiliou combined for a third-place time of 16.20 seconds in the 55-meter dash. Liz Pieri and Katy Pieri got to third in the 400-meter dash (2:15.35). The Rams were also third in the high jump (9 feet 6 inches) and 1,000-meter run, plus fourth in the triple jump and fourth in the 1,500-meter run. J-D got fifth in the 3,000-meter run.

F-M won twice, including the 1,500-meter run, where Jillian Fanning (5:22.69) and Maggie Malone (5:28.96) had the top two individual clockings. Kelly Perry and Alex Seabury prevailed in the long jump, with combined leaps of 28 feet 11 1/2 inches.

Mackenzie Carter and Kathryn Fanning were second in the 800-meter run (5:21.55), while Hannah Luber and Courtney Chapman got third in the 3,000-meter run, just two weeks removed from leading the F-M cross country team to a fourth straight national championship. The Hornets were fourth in the triple jump and fifth in the 1,000-meter run.

CBA prevailed in the 400-meter dash, where Katie Brislin won among individuals in a time of 1:04.59 and helped Ashley Letteney win in a combined 2:12.07.
