No one could keep up with the Jamesville-DeWitt boys indoor track and field team as it found points everywhere and breezed to the Section III Class A championship Sunday at Hamilton College.
By the time it was done, the Red Rams had earned 120 points, well clear of a field where New Hartford, with 69 points, won a close contest for second place. Further back, East Syracuse-Minoa tied for seventh with 21 points.
Austin Davis went to the top twice. First, he won the 3,200-meter run 10:07.36 as Will Hohreiter (10:27.48) claimed third place and Jack Healy finished fifth. In the 1,000-meter run, Davis prevailed in 2:44.81, where ESM’s Joe Coogan was fourth. Davis added a sixth in the mile.
Ira Griffin claimed the 55-meter dash in 6.82 seconds as Michael Meyer (7.01 seconds) landed in third, then went to the 300-meter dash and took that race in 37.02 seconds. Tom Wilson was fourth in the 600-meter run. Dan Driscoll claimed second in the mile in 4:37.77, where ESM’s Mike Coogan dominated the race, winning in 4:25.11.
Will Sterriker was second (8.80 seconds) and Nate Sturgeon fourth in the 55-meter hurdles. Driscoll, Wilson, Hohreiter and Healy earned second place in the 4×800 relay (9:00.03) as J-D also was fourth in the 4×400 relay and fifth in the 4×200.
In field events, Ryan Peters got second place in the shot put with a toss of 44 feet 10 inches as Koy Adams took fourth place. Sterriker had a third-place triple jump of 37 feet 11 inches, while Meyer was fifth. Griffin and Sterriker were fourth and fifth, respectively, in the long jump as Jaquan Tearney snagged sixth place in the high jump.
Meanwhile, in the sectional Class AA championship meet, Fayetteville-Manlius tied West Genesee for fifth place, each of them finishing with 47 points as Liverpool went to the top spot with 91 points.
