Track Hornets sweep C. Square, move to 3-0

Now at 3-0 on the season, both of the Fayetteville-Manlius track and field teams would find success in last Monday's meet against Central Square.

The girls Hornets nearly doubled the Red Hawks' output in a 92-48 win, getting nice balance from its deep core of distance runners.

Mackenzie Carter, back from injury that hampered her late in the indoor season, ran 3,000 meters in 10:45, while Courtney Chapman tore to victory in the 1,500-meter run in 4:40.5 and Katie Sischo needed 2:24.1 to prevail at 800 meters.

Maggie Malone, who won the 400-meter dash (1:01.6), also teamed with Jillian Fanning, Kathryn Fanning and Shannon Darin to take the 4x800 relay in 10:11.2.

In the sprints, Audrey Wallace took the 400-meter hurdles (1:11.4) and Molly Levy was first in the 200-meter dash (28.2 seconds). Levy, Wallace, Darin and Sicho got together to win the 4x400 relay (4:14.5) as Levy also helped the Hornets win the 4x100 in 54.4 seconds.

Central Square earned victories in most of the field events, but Jhoville Pommells provided an exception as she threw the shot put 29 feet 8 inches for a win there.

Meanwhile, the F-M boys team beat Central Square 87-54, getting three wins from Chris Ruggeri. He ran the 110 high hurdles in 16.6 seconds, cleared 5 feet 10 inches in the high jump and prevailed in the triple jump by going 40 feet 1 inch.

Ryan Jones stepped in to take the 100 (11.7 seconds) and 200 (24.6 seconds) sprints, while Alex Hatz covered 800 meters in 2:07.8. Andrew Roache ran to first in the mile (4:53.3) and Brendan Farrell tore to first place in the 3,200-meter run in 10:01.4.

F-M took two of the three relays. Hatz, Andrew Veilleux, Addison Straub and Pat Hartnett covered the 4x400 in 3:41.1, while Roache helped Veilleux, Paul Merriman and Ben Thomas for a winning 4x800 time of 8:31.6.
