Christian Brothers Academy's boys track and field team put up the biggest challenge to host Marcellus in Monday's Onondaga High School League Liberty division championship meet.

Emmanuel Collins swept to victories in the sprints, as he beat teammate Deshawn Salter, 11.70 seconds to 11.81, in the 100-meter dash and won the 200-meter dash in 23.22 seconds, edging Solvay's Nick Cometti (23.35) at the wire.
In the 4x100 relay, Collins, Salter, Nate Fornal and Kevin Frasor prevailed in 45.21 seconds, more than a second clear of Marcellus (46.76), as the Brothers also got fourth in the 4x400 (3:46.87). Frasor, on his own, was second in the 400-meter dash (52.74 seconds).

Dan Predmore would win the discus, heaving it 117 feet 9 inches, as Salter got third in the shot put (39 feet 11 3/4 inches). Will Brower rose to second in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:04.37 and cleared 5 feet 6 inches to tie Marcellus' Nick Stogsdill for the top clearance in the high jump.
