Track Northstars get sweep of Baldwinsville

Volino leads boys effort; girls sweep all field events

For the second time in five days, the Cicero-North Syracuse boys track and field team found itself at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium.

This one, though, was a head-to-head meet between the Northstars and Baldwinsville. As in the April 21 Arcaro Relays, though, C-NS finished on top, 81-60, mostly by showing its versatility and depth.

Frank Volino was the lone two-time winner. Volino ran the 110 high hurdles in 15 seconds flat and went on to claim the 400-meter hurdles in a swift 57.8 seconds.

Mark Broughton gave C-NS a sprint title when he edged B’ville’s Shay Sargeant in the 100-meter dash, though both finished in 11.2 seconds. He also teamed with Cameron Shaughnessy, Shawn Webb and Avery Yarn to take the 4x100 relay in 44.3 seconds.

Then, in the longest race, Neil Gill prevailed for the Northstars in the 3,200-meter run in 9:57.4, though C-NS saved its most success for field events.

Cameron Labarge took the pole vault, clearing 11 feet 6 inches, while Joel Brousseau topped exactly 6 feet in the high jump. Bryson Mayes unleashed a top triple jump of 40’ 2 ½” as Austin George, winning the shot put, threw it 42’4”.

Back home at Bragman Stadium, the C-NS girls roared past Baldwinsville 96-45, getting two wins from both Katie Osborne and Mariah Thomson during a sweep of the field events.

Osborne cleared 5’4” in the high jump and went 16’11” in the long jump. Thomson, meanwhile, had a top discus throw of 89’6” before she went 34’3” in the shot put. Jessica Wheeler won the pole vault, clearing 9 feet, as Javielle Fanizzi had a top triple jump of 33’7”.

On the track, Wheeler won again, claiming the 100 hurdles in 16.5 seconds. C-NS swept the distance events, too, as Maria LaMontagne took the 800 (2:30.20), Nicole Watterud breezed to a 1,500-meter win (5:06.6) and Jacqlynn Halstead ran 3,000 meters in 11:03.2. Halstead, LaMontagne, Marissa Colburn and Taylor Parry took the 4x800 relay in 10:29.9.
