Boys Bees streak to CNYCL track title

Baldwinsivlle's boys track and field team did not care much about what had taken place in the regular season, as long as the post-season turned out well.

With that as a premise, the Bees went to Thursday's CNY Counties League National division championship meet at Bragman Stadium and gained revenge for a May 6 defeat to Cicero-North Syracuse, the meet's hosts.

When it all got added up, B'ville had 150.5 points, just ahead of CNS, who was second with 145 points. West Genesee finished third with 109.5 points.

The Bees won six different events, including a 1-2-3 sweep in the 3,000-meter steeplechase where Shaun Thompson won in a time of 10:00.84. Andres Romeu took second place (10:43.01) and Joel Moss (10:49.31) finished third.

Sean Bernstein won a tight 200-meter dash, edging Utica Proctor's Will Hawkins, 22.78 seconds to 22.81. He also was second in the 100-meter dash (11.26 seconds) and cleared 6 feet 2 inches in the high jump for second place.

Brian Kane ruled in the high jump with a clearance of 6 feet 5 inches, and he added a fifth (40 feet 1 inch) in the triple jump. In the 3,200-meter run, Adam Pacheck took charge, winning in a time of 9:52.10 as Thompson (9:56.39) claimed second place.

Tim Chambers joined in the fun as he won a dramatic 800-meter duel with CNS's Jared Walther. Chambers hit the line in 2:01.54, one-hundredth of a second ahead of Walther (2:01.55) as they hit the wire together.

Nathan McCabe was sixth in the 800, as he was also fourth in the mile (4:32.60), with Pacheck in fifth place. In the 4x800 relay, Pacheck, Tim Chambers, Sam Kurey and Chris Wicks finished second in 8:23.86 as Liverpool (8:17.42) prevailed. B'ville also took fourth in the 4x400.

B'ville had a 1-2 finish in the discus, where Matt Getman prevailed with a throw of 132 feet 7 inches and Raeshaun Jones (127 feet 2 inches) took second place. Jon Hingre took second in the pentathlon with 2,042 points.
