Hornets, Rams duel in back-to-back meets

Each of the area's top indoor track and field teams would prove quite active in back-to-back meets at Manley Field House.

During last Monday's John Arcaro Memorial Invitational, Fayetteville-Manlius earned 52 points on the girls side, second only to Cicero-North Syracuse (55 points) as Jamesville-DeWitt grabbed third place with 37.33 points.

In the 3,000-meter run, F-M went 1-2 as Katie Sischo won in 10:18.31 and Mackenzie Carter (10:29.34) finished second. Bishop Grimes' Jessica Curry was third in 11:04.01 as J-D's Eileen Cody (11:11.23) was fourth.

On the Hornets' side, Kathryn Fanning won the 1,500-meter run in a time of 4:55.64, with Maggie Malone taking third place in 5:04.98. J-D's Paige Morrow finished sixth. Heather Martin earned a 500-meter victory in 1:20.12, edging out Liverpool's Trina Bills (1:20.16) at the wire. Isabell Carapella was fourth in the 55-meter hurdles in 10.01 seconds.

J-D would beat the field in the 4x200 relay as Linsay Royer, Amanda Tan, Natalie Mannion and Marae Tearney combined for a time of 1:52.51, the Rams edging past Corcoran (1:52.57) by six-hundredths of a second. F-M (1:55.52) was in fourth place.

Tearney wasn't done, either, as she went to the shot put and, with a toss of 36 feet 8 inches, beat the field by nearly three feet. Katy Pieri was third in the pole vault (7 feet 6 inches), with Danielle Doss tying for sixth. Margaret Fuller earned fifth place in the high jump, with Mannion sixth in the triple jump.

CBA had most of its points in the 1,000 sprint medley relay, where Katie Brislin, Ashley Letteney, Rachel Zajdel and Betty Etheredge took second place in 2:31.40, just behind Utica Proctor (2:30.38) at the wire. J-D was fourth in 2:33.51.

Over in the boys Arcaro meet, F-M and J-D each had 30 points, tying for fourth place as Corcoran (39 points) grabbed the top spot.
