Skaneateles track sweeps J-E, Marcellus

Proving that it could handle both of its neighbors at once, the Skaneateles track and field teams won all sides of Wednesday's three-way meet with Marcellus and Jordan-Elbridge.

On the girls end, it proved quite easy, as the Lakers crushed the Mustangs 116-25 and did the same kind of damage to the Eagles 119-21.

Rachel Hosie would edge teammate Grace Vanderven, 4:59.9 to 5:00.4, in the 1,500-meter run, and also prevail in the 3,000-meter run (11:55.7) as Vanderven went on to win the long jump, going 14 feet 10 1/2 inches.

Christie Barnett took part in two winning relays in addition to her 400-meter hurdles conquest in 1:11.13. In the 4x800, Barnett helped Amanda Gray, Beatrice Walton and Carly Strods finish in 10:06.4, while the 4x400 saw Sakal and Berg join Barnett and Eileen Ford as they won in a clocking of 4:13.2.

Though the boys meet on both sides proved closer, Skaneateles still did enough to beat Marcellus 75-66 and top J-E 92-49.
