J-E boys track defeats Solvay

Mostly through its sweeps of the distance events, the Jordan-Elbridge boys track and field team won its head-to-head clash with Solvay last Wednesday at Earl Hadley Stadium, beating the Bearcats 76-65 as it also toppled Cazenovia 85-53.

Cody Stanton led J-E, taking the 3,200-meter run in 10:12.4, while Mike Marrero prevailed in the mile (4:54.3) and Greg Bader ran 800 meters in 2:10.3. That trio also helped the Eagles win the 4x800 relay in a time of 8:55.4.

Elsewhere, Andrew Conlan took the 100-meter dash in 11.5 seconds, and the Eagles' 4x400 relay quartet of Bader, Marrero, Nick Burns and Carlan Coomey won in 3:43.7.

Solvay had its fair share of titles, too, including C.J. Brooks tossing the shot put 48 feet 3 inches and flinging the discus 120 feet 4 3/4 inches.

Matt Fedrizzi claimed first in the 400-meter dash (54.3 seconds), with Xander Nappi running 200 meters in 24 seconds flat and John Salvagno taking the 400 hurdles in 1:02.9. Ed Buczakowski won the 110 high hurdles (17.8 seconds) as Jerry Santoferrara cleared 10 feet in the pole vault.

Solvay would also claim the 4x100 relay, where Nappi, Buczakowski, Chris Hoffman and Alex Miro held off J-E and Cazenovia to win in 47.8 seconds.
