CNS girls beat Liverpool for league indoor title

All through Monday night's CNY Counties League National division championship meet at Manley Field House, the Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool girls indoor track and field teams slugged it out.

When it was done, the Northstars prevailed, just as it did at the Feb. 3 Section III Class AA meet, with 142.5 points, though the Warriors were a close second with 129 points.

Jasmine Thompson was a difference-maker on CNS's behalf. First, she beat teammate Katie Osborne to the line in the 55-meter hurdles, 8.70 seconds to 9.06.

Thompson also won the high jump, clearing 5 feet 4 inches (best of the night), and was second in the long jump with 17 feet 2 1/4 inches as Osborne was sixth. In between, Liverpool's Armani Moore (16 feet 1/2 inch) was fourth.

CNS went 1-2 in the shot put, Casey Wilmer winning it with a toss of 35 feet 3 1/4 inches as Valerie Langevin was second (34 feet 3 1/2 inches) and Tatiana Gladney got third place (33 feet 6 1/2 inches) for Liverpool.

On the track, Taylor Wendler, with a time of 5:05.41, beat teammate Nicole Watterud (5:07.72) to the line in the 1,500-meter run, with Liverpool getting Lesley Bowers in third place (5:10.41) and Kaitlyn McNamara in fourth.

In the 3,000-meter run, it was much the same as Wendler won in 10:37.16 and Watterud again followed in 10:42.31, with Lesley Bowers third (10:47.25) and Chelsea Attaway fourth.

In the 4x800 relay, Nicole Campagna, Katie Laris, Marissa Colburn and Schuyler Cary gave CNS a victory in 10:08.5, with Liverpool third in 10:37.81. The Northstars were second (4:20.50) to Rome Free Academy (4:15.39) in the 4x400, with Liverpool third in 4:21.79.

Brittany Murphy gave CNS a fourth in the triple jump by going 32 feet 4 3/4 inches as the Warriors' Megan Earle finished sixth. Earle was also sixth in the 55 hurdles as Nikki Carfi was fifth (10.25 seconds) behind Thompson and Osborne.
