Caz boys track beats Marcellus, CBA

Closing its regular-season slate in a strong way, the Cazenovia boys track and field team swept through Wednesday's meet with Marcellus and Christian Brothers Academy, beating the Mustangs 75-66 and routing the Brothers 115-26.

Three different Lakers earned two individual titles, including Joe Bono, who threw the discus 136 feet 8 inches and won the shot put with a toss of 40 feet 2 inches.

Eric Ginowski worked his way to first in the 200-meter dash (25.2 seconds) and also won the 400-meter hurdles in 1:06.2. Also, Eric Goldman had a top long jump of 19 feet 4 1/2 inches before claiming the triple jump with 39 feet 3 inches.

Nico Schmidt, who earned victory in the 100-meter dash (12.1 seconds), also teamed with Tim Wheeler, Alex Petroff and Zach Bender to take the 4x100 relay in 49.0 seconds.

In the girls meet, Cazenovia ripped past Marcellus 106-35, but could not keep up with CBA, whose 83-58 win gave them the outright OHSL Liberty division regular-season title.

Still, Paige Biviano emerged with three individual titles. She won the 100-meter high hurdles in 16.6 seconds, cleared 4 feet 10 inches in the high jump and won the long jump by going 17 feet 3 inches, two inches ahead of CBA's Betty Etheredge. Biviano also was third in the triple jump.

Cazenovia, in fact, cleaned up in field events. Piper Gianforte cleared 9 feet in the pole vault. Grace Eberle prevailed in the discus (75 feet 6 inches) as Molly Woodworth threw the shot put 26 feet 2 inches to earn first place in that event.

Hollie Marcelle won a thrilling 1,500-meter run, kicking past CBA's Carol Giblin to win in 5:07.1, six-tenths of a second ahead of Giblin. She also teamed with Meaghan Liddell, Meghan Karmis and Kaja Tollersrud to win the 4x400 relay (4:40.2) as Gianforte, Woodworth, Audrey Bowers and Meghan Morrow ran the 4x100 in 53.7 seconds.

Both Cazenovia teams go to Marcellus next Tuesday for the OHSL Liberty meet.
