J-D indoor track takes second at Colgate

Instead of another trip to SUNY-Cortland, the Jamesville-DeWitt indoor track and field teams chose to compete in Wednesday's John DiMao Invtiational at Colgate University, where it finished second in both divisions against a whole new group of opponents.

The girls Red Rams had 80.33 points, topped only by Cazenovia (112.33 points), while the boys had 60 points to finish runner-up to Utica Proctor, who won with 84 points.

Half of J-D's girls points came from field events. Sierra Vasiliou won the girls shot put with a toss of 32 feet 4 1/2 inches and went 15 feet 1 inch to take second place in the long jump.

Danielle Doss earned first place in pole vault, clearing 8 feet as Katy Pieri (7 feet) finished fourth. Maggie Fuller was second in the high jump (5 feet). Liz Pieri and Taylor Cook were fifth and sixth, respectively, in the triple jump.

On the oval, J-D won the 4x400 relay as Doss, Liz Pieri, Katy Pieri and Ally Fox roared to a time of 4:21.41. Ameena Dye, Hannah Stefl, Sophie Leavitt and Avery Share were second in the 4x800 relay (11:15.63), as Dye also landed second place in the 1,500-meter run in 5:15.98. Paige Morrow took third in the 600-meter run (1:50.85) and Becca Doss finished fifth.

Over in the boys meet, Ira Griffin emerged with a victory in the 55-meter dash in 6.73 seconds, and the 4x800 quartet of Austin Davis, Tom Wilson, Dan Driscoll and Will Hohreiter prevailed in 8:49 flat, the only sub-nine minute clocking.

Davis also ran to second place in the mile in 4:36.11, just behind Chittenango's Josiah Durfee (4:35.53), as Dan Driscoll finished sixth. Will Sterriker took second place in the 55-meter hurdles in 8.67 seconds, with Nate Sturgeon sixth.

J-D was fourth in the 4x200 relay (1:46.25), with Wilson fourth in the 600-meter run in 1:35.84. Griffin was fifth in the long jump.
