Westhill rises to third at Tully track meet

Instead of relaxing, the Westhill boys track and field team went out and made a big impact during last Tuesday's Tully Spring Break Invitational.

Amid a field of 14 sides, the Warriors took third place, earning 66 points, just behind Skaneateles (67 points) for the runner-up spot. Jamesville-DeWitt won with 93 points. Marcellus (30 points) and Jordan-Elbridge (28.5 points) were ninth and 10th, respectively.

Westhill got 17 of those points in the 3,200-meter run, where Jon Moore won in a time of 10:48.32, with Liam Rodgers and Alec Walsh fourth and fifth, respectively. Another win came in the 4x400 relay, where Christian St. Amour, Jack Honis, Matt Trendowski and Tim Sheridan finished in 3:46.73, more than 15 seconds ahead of the field.

Meanwhile, Corey Wilkinson swept the throwing events, as he flung the discus 126 feet 5 inches, nearly 10 feet clear of the field, and also prevailed in the shot put with a toss of 42 feet 6 1/4 inches. Teammate Carson Hicks was fifth in both events.

Sheridan cleared 5 feet 4 inches for fourth place in the high jump. Kevin Fagan was fifth in the 400 hurdles and Casey Bunce took sixth in the 800-meter run.

Marcellus won the 1,600 sprint medley relay, where Nate Waite, John Bell, Brad Kermes and Justin Garn finished in 3:53.25, more than three seconds ahead of runner-up CBA. Bunce, Trendowski, Honis and St. Amour put Westhill third in 4:03.34.

Rob Coon took the pole vault, the only competitor to clear 11 feet, while Chaz Hayes went 40 feet 1 1/2 inches in the triple jump for second place. The Mustangs also had Waite run to fifth in the 100-meter dash in 12.03 seconds,

J-E featured Steve Slonosky, Jack Gugle, Robert Patterson and Eric Gross getting third place in the 4x800 relay in 9:38.34.
