J-D track shines at Jordan-Elbridge meet

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 4x400 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.

Tom Driscoll (10:37.11) and Will Hohreiter (10:43.56) were third and fifth, respectively, in the 3,200-meter run, as TylerPetersen took fifth in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:05.36. J-D was fourth in the 4x100 relay in 48.12 seconds and also fourth (9:29.85) in the 4x800.

Moving to the girls event, J-D did pull out in front in the 4x400 relay, where Margaret Fuller, Danielle Doss, Katy Pieri and Liz Pieri finished in 4:26.03, more than six seconds ahead of the field.

Ameena Dye finished second in the 3,000-meter run in 11:14.75, with Hannah Stefl (11:20.10) in fourth place. Stefl also was fourth in the 1,500-meter run. In a close 100 sprint final, Marae Tearney was second in 13.47 seconds as Shelby Loomis (South Lewis) won in 13.42 seconds.

In the long jump, Sierra Vasiliou was second with a leap of 15 feet, while Fuller cleared 4 feet 8 inches to take third in the high jump. Doss (8 feet) and Katy Pieri (7 feet 6 inches) were second and third, respectively, in the pole vault.
