J-D track dominates ESM, Fowler

Extending its lead in the OHSL Freedom division, the Jamesville-DeWitt track and field teams had an easy time with East Syracuse-Minoa and Fowler in Monday's three-way meet.

On the boys side, the Red Rams won 111-29 over the Spartans and 121-19 over the Falcons, with ESM also beating Fowler in a 103-33 decision.

All of J-D's stars took a turn, including David Salbert, who went 22 feet 5 inches in the long jump and added a top triple jump of 44 feet 4 inches. He also won the 400-meter dash in 51.7 seconds.

Ira Griffin was first in the 100-meter dash (11.4 seconds) and added a 200-meter win in 23 seconds flat. Bumkoth Jiak broke the two-minute mark again in the 800-meter run (1:59.7) as Austin Davis covered the mile in 4:46.3.

Davis, Jiak, Tyler Petersen and Max Smith combined to prevail in the 4x800 relay (8:16.6) as J-D also won the 4x100 (46.9 seconds) and 4x400 (3:38.5), where Salbert, Petersen, Tim Kendrick and Alex Wilmot came together. Petersen, on his own, claimed the 400 hurdles in 1:03.9.

ESM would have a couple of winning moments, though, as Steve Episcopo cleared 9 feet to take the pole vault and Mike Coogan ran 3,200 meters in 10:42.

Over in the girls meet, where J-D beat ESM 127-14 and Fowler 141-10 and the Spartans beat the Falcons 114-26, the Rams swept all the events.
