Both of the Skaneateles indoor track and field teams held up well against large-school entries during last Tuesday’s CNY Indoor Track Association meet at SUNY-Cortland’s Lusk Field House.
Competing in the afternoon session, the girls Lakers finished fourth out of eight teams, earning 37 points, while the Skaneateles boys had 21 points for seventh place.
Eileen Ford won the individual triple jump, going 32 feet 3 1/2 inches, as she and Jane Gaffney combined to win the team event by going 59 feet between them.
Caroline Stanford, Carly Strods, Megan Dwyer and Danielle Mazzeo teamed for second place in the 1,600 sprint medley in 5:01.47. Strods and Jane Gaffney joined Emma Ford and Eileen Fords to take second in the 4×400 relay in 4:33.46 as Sophie Gorman and Grace Kelly earned second (22.22 seconds) in the 55 hurdles.
