Girls track athletes qualify for state meet

For the third time, Cicero-North Sryacuse's Bragman Stadium will play host to the best track athletes in New York during this weekend's state championship meet.

And many top performers from Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool will be in the field, after their work during last week's Section III state qualifier at the same CNS facility.

Jasmine Thompson rolled to a victory in the Division I (large school) pentathlon, earning 2,816 points, while Liverpool's Harmony Cross took third with 2,645 points.

Lindsay Raulli beat all Division I rivals in the 2,000-meter steeplechase in 7:26.72, with Liverpool's Brigid Heenan second (7:31.63) and Schuyler Cary giving the Northstars a fourth-place finish in

Marissa Colburn (4:53.55) and Nicole Watterud (4:53.78) were third and fourth, respectively, in the Division I 3,000-meter run. Chelsea Davidson took fifth in the 400 hurdles in 1:12.66. Valerie Langevin landed in fourth in the discus with a toss of 112 feet and also took fifth in the shot put.

Trina Bills gave Liverpool a Division I victory in the 800-meter run with her time of 2:21.88, with Miranda McConnell third in 2:30.76. In between, CNS's Nicole Campagna got second place in 2:23.12. Colburn, Waterrud, Campagna and Nicole Gillette took second in the 4x800 relay in 9:48.05 as Fayetteville-Manlius (9:27.30) prevailed.

Armani Moore earned second in the long jump, going 16 feet 6 3/4 inches, with CNS's Alana Hotchkiss (15 feet 7 1/2 inches) in fifth place. Hotchkiss also grabbed fifth in the triple jump (34 feet 1 1/2 inches) as Gina Campagna tied for ninth in the high jump.

The Warriors won its qualifying heat in the 4x100 relay with 50.12 seconds, the fastest time, but got knocked out of the final due to a bad pass of the baton. In the 4x400, Bills, Chrissy Scalisi, Skye Borasky and Rachel Putman finished second in 4:04.85.
