J-D track sweeps to titles at Cortland meet

Each of Jamesville-DeWitt's indoor track and field teams would go to the top of the standings in the sixth CNY Indoor Track Association meet of the season, held Saturday at SUNY-Cortland's Lusk Field House.

The girls Red Rams had 97 points, beating Fayetteville-Manlius, who was second with 81 points, with CBA (17 points) back in seventh. And the J-D boys got 83 points to fend off West Genesee (81 points) and Corcoran (77 points) as the Hornets had 36 points for fourth place.

J-D would take the girls 4x400 relay as Liz Pieri, Katy Pieri, Margaret Fuller and Danielle Doss finished in a time of 4:24.92, just ahead of West Genesee (4:25.62) at the wire. F-M was sixth in 4:47.60.

In the high jump, Fuller (5 feet) and Liz Pieri (4 feet 6 inches) had a 1-2 finish ahead of East Syracuse-Minoa's Heather Hiltbrand in third place. And in the pole vault, Katy Pieri won and Doss was second, each of them clearing 7 feet 6 inches as J-D got 36 total points from those events.

Natalie Mannion was third (31 feet 6 1/2 inches) and Amanda Tan fourth (30 feet 3 inches) in the triple jump, with CBA seeing Betty Etheredge take second place (31 feet 6 3/4 inches) and Julia Nass fifth place. J-D's Victoria Nandel was second in the shot put with a toss of 25 feet 11 inches as F-M's Yousi Oquendo was fifth.

Everywhere F-M had success, J-D seemed to gain points, too. In the 1,500-meter run, Hornet teammates Courtney Chapman (4:44.76) and Katie Sischo (4:50.16) went 1-2, and J-D's Eileen Cody took third place in 5:08.28 as Bishop Grimes teammates Jessica Curry and Elizabeth Black were fourth and sixth, respectively.

In the 4x800 relay, where Chapman, Sischo, Jillian Fanning and Heather Martin won in 9:45.87, J-D snagged a point for sixth place as the Hornets also took fourth in the 4x200. Bishop Grimes was third (10:43.01) in the 4x800.
