Four days after sweeping Fulton, many of the Jamesville-Dewitt track and field stars went west, to the Jordan-Elbridge Invitational, and put on another sparkling show.
Bumkoth Jiak dominated in the 800-meter run, his time of 1:56.33 more than 11 seconds better than the rest of the field, a huge mark for a half-mile event. Then, in the mile, Jiak led a 1-2 finish as, in a clocking of 4:34.74, he beat Austin Davis (4:38.29) for that top spot.
In the 4×400 relay, J-D went to the top as Alex Wilmot, Tom Wilson, Will Sterriker and Max Smith held off Marcellus, 3:44.75 to 3:44.84, at the line. Sterriker also prevailed on his own, taking the long jump by going 18 feet 10 1/2 inches as he got third (37 feet 7 inches) in the triple jump.

ESM would win the sprint medley relay as Kyle Gagen, Justin Proulx, Ray Winterhalt and Mike Coogan got a time of 4:14.82, more than four seconds ahead of runner-up Watertown.
Steve Episcopo finished second in the pole vault, clearing 9 feet 6 inches, as the Spartans also got third in the steeplechase relay (10:19.58). Mike Terry (1:06.62) and Andres Salcedo (1:08.44) were third and fourth, respectively, in the 400 hurdles, with Salcedo getting fourth and Terry fifth in the 110 high hurdles.
