In yet another high-profile meet, the Baldwinsville boys track and field team lined up against the area’s best at Friday’s New Hartford Invitational, the first of a series of weekend meets for the Bees on both sides.
B’ville would finish second in New Hartford, earning 67 points. That beat everyone except Utica Proctor, who finished on top with 92 points.
Shaun Thompson gave the Bees a win in the 3,200-meter run as the junior finished in a time of 9:29.63, more than 15 seconds clear of New Hartford’s Alex Tompkins.
Raeshaun Jones dominated the discus, his throw of 144 feet 1 inch surpassing the runner-up, Jamesville-DeWitt’s Michael Paul, by more than 10 feet. Jones also took fourth in the shot put, tossing it 44 feet 5 1/2 inches. In the high jump, Brian Kane tied for second, only able to clear 6 feet as Oneida star Mike Rabbitt (6 feet 2 inches) prevailed.
Earning lots of points in relays, the Bees got second in the 4×200 as Rudy Sapp, Parker Kiff, Antonio Peck and Alex Nagy finished in 1:36.13. The Bees also got third in the 4×800 relay as Alec Peinkofer, Josh Perez, Chris Wicks and
Ethan Pacheck put up a time of 8:29.67.
Peck, Nagy, Sapp and Nate McCabe were third in the sprint medley relay (3:42.33) as Kiff joined Sapp, Nagy and Peck to help B’ville take fourth in the 4×100 in 45.06 seconds. Adam Pacheck ran his way to fifth place in the mile in 4:30.72, with Andrew Hoover fifth in the 400 hurdles (58.83 seconds).
B’ville’s girls team would return on Saturday, at the Chittenango Invitational, where it earned 39.5 points for fifth place in a field of 13. Cicero-North Syracuse won with 114 points.
Many of those points came in the 400-meter dash, where Jaimee Balloni claimed second place in 1:03.60 and Gabrielle Jordan got fourth place in 1:04.51. Gina Carnovale took fourth place in the 100-meter dash in 13.48 seconds. Carnovale, Balloni, Quaniesha Ivey and Gabrielle Jordan took sixth place in 4:37.06.
Andrea Peters got to second in the pole vault, clearing 8 feet 6 inches. Laura Farleman took third (15 feet 4 1/4 inches) and Alexi Pateras fourth (15 feet 3/4 inch) in the long jump, as Farleman also cleared 4 feet 10 inches for fourth place in the high jump.
B’ville’s girls had a solid showing in last Thursday’s meet against Rome Free Academy, even though it lost to the Black Knights 76-64.
Farleman, fresh off her pentathlon win at the Liverpool “Star War” Meet on April 24, won the 100-meter high hurdles in 16 seconds flat and also took the high jump, clearing 4 feet 8 inches.
Erica Miller swept the throwing events with a shot put toss of 32 feet 7 1/2 inches and a win in the discus, where she flung it 87 feet 8 inches. On the oval, Balloni took the 1,500-meter run in 5:33.1 and Ashley Shaheen needed 2:39.6 to prevail at 800 meters.
