In support, Matt Giannino took the 400-meter dash in 54.4 seconds and won the 800-meter run (2:03.5), while Amani Jackson and John Dunmore both hit the line in the 100-meter dash in 11.4 seconds.

CBA's girls team lost to Westhill 74-58 and J-E by a 98-42 margin, despite Betty Etheredge going 15 feet 5 1/2 inches in the long jump and 33 feet 4 inches in the triple jump. Katie Brislin took the 1,500-meter run (5:19) and helped the Brothers' 4x800 relay team prevail in 10:32.6.

East Syracuse-Minoa had some close meets, splitting on the girls side by beating Fulton 86-55 but losing to Homer in an 82-59 decision.

Cara Andrianos was first in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:15.3, while Meghan Visser ran the 3,000 in 11:51.7. Chelsea Medler won both the shot put (27 feet 5 1/4 inches) and discus (77 feet 4 inches) before it was done.

The ESM boys lost tight decisions to Homer 73-68 and Fulton 79-63. Christian Larrabee got first in the 400-meter dash (53.3 seconds) and Craig Andrianos ran the 800 in 2:05.1, with Mike Coogan taking the 3,200 in 10:48 flat.
