Another week — and another post-season accolade for the Jamesville-DeWitt boys indoor track and field team to pick up.
The Red Rams smothered the rest of the competition at Wednesday night’s OHSL Freedom division championship meet, picking up 140 points, the most of any team in any of the four league meets. Chittenango, with 66 points, was far back in second place. East Syracuse-Minoa earned 29 points.
David Salbert won both the long jump (20 feet 5 inches) and triple jump, where he went 45 feet, the best leap of the entire night, ahead of teammate Tim Kendrick (37 feet 1 1/2 inches) in second place. Robert Carter was fifth in the long jump.
Kyree Adams won the shot put with a toss of 44 feet 1 1/2 inches as Matt Spalding (41 feet 1/4 inches) completed a 1-2 sweep on J-D’s part. Christian Quetell cleared a height of 8 feet 6 inches and won the pole vault, giving J-D 58 total points in just the field events.
Bumkuth Jiak led the domination on the oval by, among other things, helping Kendrick, Austin Davis and Will Hohreiter prevail in the 4×800 relay in 8:52.39.
On his own, Jiak won the 600-meter run in 1:23.92 and also was first in the 1,000-meter run in 2:38.51. Hohreiter took third in the 3,200-meter run in 11:16.27
Ira Griffin won the 55-meter dash over Fowler’s Jamal Reed, 6.78 seconds to 6.80, and also was second in the 300-meter dash in 36.85 seconds. Carter was fifth in the 55.
In the 4×400 relay, Kendrick, Eric Semmel, Will Sterriker and Alex Wilmot earned yet another victory in 3:35.82 as ESM took fourth place.
Salbert, Carter, Sterriker and Mike Scibilia took third in the 4×200 relay (1:38.78), where the Spartans were sixth. Semmel (8.82 seconds) and Nathan Sturgeon were third and fifth, respectively, in the 55-meter hurdles.
ESM did stand out in the mile, where Mike Coogan finished second in 4:40.64 and Craig Andrianos took fourth (4:49.94) ahead of J-D’s Davis, who was fifth. Pete Ferstler was third in the 600 (1:32.48) behind Jiak. Andres Salacedo took fourth in the 55 hurdles and Louis Ferronte was fifth in the 3,200.
Up in the CNY Counties League American division, Fayetteville-Manlius senior Alex Hatz won twice as the Hornets finished with 72 points, third behind Corcoran and West Genesee.
Hatz tore through the 3,200 in 9:08.18, nearly a minute ahead of the field, as Ben Thomas (10:10.48) finished third, and held off WG’s Billy Gabriel, 4:24.30 to 4:25.33, in the mile, where Paul Merriman was fifth. In the 4×800, Hatz, Andrew Roache, Owen Strong and Mark McGurrin claimed second place in 8:32.54.
In the 1,000, Merriman finished third (2:43.85) and Roache was fourth in 2:50.16. The same thing happened in the 600, where McGurrin took third place (1:28.57) and Joe Hartnett was fourth in 1:33.55.
Hartnett, J.R. Sage, Andrew Veilleux and Langston Lightcap ran to second in the 4×400 relay in 3:42.84, with Sage also fourth in the long jump (18 feet 8 inches).
CBA, who had 22 points in the Class B/C/D event, had Tom Voorheis finish second in the mile in 4:35.75 and helped Matt Giannino, Tom Lenkiewicz and David Carey claim second in the 4×800 relay in 9:06.20. Giannino took fourth (2:38.03) in the 1,000, and the Brothers were fifth in the 4×400.
