Girls indoor track Lakers win OHSL Liberty/Freedom title

A month spent within the Mohawk Valley Indoor Track Association did nothing to dilute the Cazenovia girls as it moved to face new competition in Saturday's Onondaga High School League Liberty/Patriot division meet at Colgate University.

In a field of 10, the Lakers came out on top with relative ease, earning 169 points as Skaneateles took second place with 101 points. The Cazenovia boys were third on its side with 66 points as Marcellus (119.5 points) went to the top.

Paige Biviano, on her own, won twice, taking 9.39 seconds to dominate the 55-meter hurdles (Beth Marcelle was fifth) and going 15 feet 7 3/4 inches in the long jump to edge out Audrey Bowers (15 feet 6 inches), who was second.

Biviano also got second in the triple jump, going 31 feet 11 1/2 inches, just half an inch behind Skaneateles' Gabby Eckles, with Hannah Light-Olson (29 feet 2 inches) in third place.

Cazenovia began its relay domination by having Jillian Vogl, Jackie O'Sullivan, Hollie Marcelle and Emmajean Speer sail through the 4x400 in 4:24.94 to win by more than six seconds over Skaneateles.

Moving to the 4x200 relay, Bowers, Piper Gianforte, Ashley Winn and Jackie O'Sullivan earned the victory in 1:55.71, more than two seconds clear of Jordan-Elbridge (1:57.98). Caroline Marshall, Hollie Marcelle, Jeannette Cudney and Margaret Wolsey won the 4x800 relay in 10:37.35.

Winn, with a time of 42.34 seconds, beat Vogl (43.50) in a sweep at the top of the 300-meter dash, and won the 55-meter dash in 7.63 seconds as Vogl took fourth.

Marcelle rolled to victory in the 600-meter run in 1:45.75, nearly three seconds ahead of J-E's Brianna Byrnes. Cudney claimed second in the 3,000-meter run (11:15.13) and Marshall was fourth in the 1,500-meter run, with Rachel Grimm fifth in the 1,000-meter run and Wolsey in sixth.
