In the last indoor track meet of 2009, the Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool indoor track and field teams both snagged wins during the CNY Indoor Track Association gathering last Tuesday at SUNY-Corltand's Lusk Field House.
CNS won on the girls side, picking up 72 points to edge out Liverpool, who earned 62 points. Mexico was a distant third with 41 points.
Jasmine Thompson, Nicole Campagna, Sarah Dean and Maria Lamontagne dominated the 1,600 distance medley, the Northstars winning in 4:25.96, more than half a minute ahead of the field. Thompson (9.03 seconds) and Jessica Wheeler (9.77 seconds) had the top two individual times in the 55-meter hurdles, too, as Liverpool got third in 23.08 seconds.
