Cicero Both of Baldwinsville’s track and field teams made the first of many trips to Cicero-North Syracuse Friday for the ninth annual C-NS Relays.
And each of the Bees’ sides would finish fifth, the boys picking up 31 points and the girls gaining 28 points. C-NS swept the team honors with 100 points for the girls and 92 points for the boys.
Nearly a third of the boys points came from seeing Alec Peinkofer, Connor Ross, Josh Perez and Andy Fleming team up to win the 4x800 relay in eight minutes, 39.71 seconds, nearly 20 seconds better than runner-up Liverpool (8:58.96).
In the 4x400 relay, Fleming, Nate Wicks, Dan Walker and Jeff Mahar claimed third place in a time of 3:36.17. B’ville also was third in the sprint medley relay, where Mahar, Wicks, Peinkofer and Rickey Sparks finished in 3:43.81. Tom Ancillotti and Pat McNamara got fourth in the discus with combined throws of 210 feet 5 inches.
Josh Perez, Antonio Martinez, Jack Martin and Nate LoParco would run in the mile relay, their total times of 19:51.65 leading to fifth place. Sean Marr and Greg Lefancheck took fifth in the 400-meter hurdles (2:16.12), with Lefancheck and Chad McArdell sixth (38.31 seconds) in the 110 hurdles.
