Both of Baldwinsville’s indoor track and field teams amassed plenty of points during Saturday’s CNY Counties League National division championships at Colgate University – but could not quite claim team honors.
The girls Bees were closer to the top (helped by Liverpool’s absence) as it earned 142 points, second only to Cicero-North Syracuse, who prevailed with 189 points.
And in the boys CNYCL National meet, B’ville had 115 points, but that only meant third place as Liverpool won (141 points) and CNS (136 points) lagged close behind.
In the 4×200 relay, Gina Carnovale, Laura Farleman, Allie Vroman and Cierra Allen prevailed in 1:56.14, more than two seconds ahead of CNS. Lindseay Varga, Julia Johnson, Mackenzie Ross and Jordan Perrone were second (10:55.98) in the 4×800 relay. Shannon Hurley, Alexandra D’Huy, Angelica Tomasello and Erin Nagle were second in the 4×400 in 4:47.27.
Farleman, on her own, won the high jump, clearing 4 feet 10 inches with fewer misses than CNS’s Katie Osborne, and would run the 55-meter hurdles in 9.97 seconds to win that event as Allie Pesano (10.69 seconds) finished third.
B’ville swept the top two spots in the 300-meter dash as Allen won in 46.19 seconds and Quaneisha Ivey (47.09 seconds) took second place. Carnovale would need 7.98 seconds to prevail in the 55-meter dash, with Vroman in fourth place.
Stephanie Vasteno earned second place in the long jump (14 feet 9 inches), where Carnovale (14 feet 6 1/4 inches) was third. Sierra Earle had a second-place shot put toss of 28 feet 10 1/2 inches.
Mallory Warner ran to third in the 3,000-meter event in 11:39.42, while Danielle DePaulis was fifth. Sydney Slavik earned third place in the 1,500-meter run (5:51.10), with Meghan Hull fourth. Ross claimed third (1:47.87) in the 600-meter run as Tomasello was fifth. Perrone was fourth and Kim Cushman fifth in the 1,000-meter run.
Meanwhile, in the boys meet Shaun Thompson dominated the 3,200-meter run, his time of 9:39.30 nearly half a minute ahead of the field as Andrew Fleming (10:33.02) took fourth. Thompson also was second in the mile in 4:37.99.
B’ville swept all three boys relays. Rudy Sapp, Andrew Hoover, Jon Hingre and Ethan Pacheck combined to win an exciting 4×400 relay as, in a time of 3:36.29, it beat Liverpool by 0.61 seconds.
In the 4×200, it proved the same as Sapp, Hoover, Todd Mitchell and Alex Nagy prevailed over Liverpool, 1:37.22 to 1:37.57, and in the 4×800 Thompson, Alec Peinkofer, Josh Perez and Andrew Fleming won in 8:38.03, with CNS 3.40 seconds behind.
Not content with that, Sapp went on to win the 55 sprint over Mitchell, 6.81 seconds to 6.90. Mitchell added a third in the 300 (38.47 seconds). Peinkofer rose to second in the 1,000 (2:38.58), as Pacheck landed in second in the 600 in 1:31.21 and Matt Pond was sixth. Hoover got second in the 55 hurdles in 8.28 seconds.
The Bees stayed close despite getting just eight points in field events. Kirk Anderson had six of them, clearing 9 feet 6 inches for third place in the pole vault as Hingre was fifth in the high jump.
