— F-M even picked up a field event, as Christabel Ezidiegwu won the triple jump with a top leap of 32 feet 9 ½ inches. Savannah Pidkaminy took third in the pole vault, clearing 7 feet 6 inches, and added a third (85’5”) in the shot put.

Anna Castro took fourth in the high jump, clearing 4’10”. Caitlin Ferro was fourth in the 400 hurdles, with Zazzara and Martin fourth and fifth, respectively, in the 200-meter dash.

Amid all this, J-D did get its fair share of points, especially from those field events. Sierra Vasiliou was second in the shot put (30’ ½”) and Tangela Hightower third (28’9 ½”), adding a third in the long jump with 15’1”.

Maggie Fuller cleared 5’3” in the high jump, but had more misses than Rome Free Academy’s Dana Husband, leaving her in second place. Patrece Martin got third in the triple jump (32’2”) as Danielle Doss, taking a turn in the pentathlon, earned third place with 2,353 points.

Fuller, Ally Fox, Katy Pieri and Liz Pieri were second (4:15.55) to F-M in the 4x400, with Rachel Fairbanks, Hannah Stefl, Laura Wengert and Katie Pinkes third in the 4x800 in 10:35.36. Vasiliou, Fox and the Pieri sisters were fourth in the 4x100 in 53.63 seconds as Fairbanks was fourth in the mile and Liz Pieri took fifth in the 400.

F-M’s boys track team would win its part of the Chittenango meet, picking up 110 points as Liverpool was second (67 points) and, again, J-D settled into third place, earning 48 points.

The Hornets had a clean sweep of the relays, starting with the 4x100, where Sean Bright, Tanner Carter, Ryan Greer and Aaron Blitz finished in 46.13 seconds.

In the 4x400, Blitz, Langston Lightcap, Charlie Beeler and Said Shakuri gained the victory in 3:34.82, and in the 4x800 Connor Farrell, Andrew Berge, Mike Malone and David Benman put the Hornets on top with a time of 8:46.21. J-D was fourth after taking a fifth in the 4x100.
