J-D swept all three relays, claiming the 4x100 (45.5 seconds), 4x400 (3:47.8) and 4x800 (8:56.3) with help from Howard, Liebmann, Taylor, Harron, Sterriker, Alex Wilmot, Nate Sturgeon, Marquis Drummond, Samuel Dye and Isaac Tupper.

On Friday, the J-D girls team went to the Tully Invitational and recorded a series of high finishes, including the 4x400, where Fox, Doss and the Pieri sisters posted 4:15.99 and beat runner-up Cazenovia (4:20.87) by nearly five seconds.

Fairbanks worked her way to second place in the 1,500 in 5:07.74, trailing only Cicero-North Syracuse’s Jacqlynn Halstead (4:59.55). In the 4x800, Fairbanks, Carpenter, Wengert and Stefl were second in 10:19.22 as, again, C-NS (10:13.33) prevailed. That same quartet took third place in the distance medley relay in 13:44.46.

Fox contended in the sprints, taking third in the 200 in 27.29 seconds and fourth in the 100 in 13.24 seconds. Liz and Katy Pieri were seventh and eighth, respectively, in the 400, and they helped Fox as J-D took second (51.97 seconds) to Cazenovia (50.85 seconds) in the 4x100 relay.

In field events, Martin landed in second place in the triple jump, going 32’7”. Vasiliou had a third-place long jump of 15’5 ½” and also got third in the shot put, throwing it 30’4” as teammate Tangela Hightower (30’2”) was fourth. Doss was sixth in the pole vault, clearing 8 feet.

And Fuller took her turn in the five-event pentathlon, winning the high jump with a clearance of 5’1 ¼” and, overall, getting 2,221 points, good for third place as C-NS star Katie Osborne won with 2,558 points.
