Liverpool girls edge F-M to claim Jensen Holiday Relays

— Where C-NS did prevail was in the 55-meter hurdles, where Hannah Szumloz and Jade Jenkins were third and sixth, respectively, and 19.30 seconds was enough to keep West Genesee (19.93 seconds) and the rest of the field away.

And in the triple jump, the Northstars won as Jenkins returned, finishing second overall (33' 3 1/2") and, with Marissa Colburn, got the top score of 63' 1 1/2", where Rowell and Allison Oltier were third (60' 2 1/2") for Liverpool. C-NS also was sixth in the 1,000-meter run and seventh in the 55 sprint.

Moving to the boys portion of the Jensen Relays, C-NS moved up to third place and picked up 45 points, beating Liverpool (29 points), but behind Baldiwnsville (62 points) and F-M (54 points) in the top two positions.

Morgan Austen, by himself, gained many of those C-NS points. He was third in the individual triple jump, but teamed with Bryson Mayes (fifth) for a team victory in 77'8 1/2", nearly two feet better than second-place Mexico.

Also, Austen was second in the 55 hurdles and, teamed with Ed Mahana for second in the team event (18.24 seconds) as F-M won in 17.87 seconds. Mark Broughton and Shawn Webb were close in the 55 sprint, getting to 13.70 seconds, but Nottingham (13.57) kept the Northstars in second place.

The Warriors' Ryheim Lawes won the individual 300 sprint in 36.84 seconds, and with Mark VanMarter got second among teams in 1:16.86, as only B'ville (1:14.76) fared better. C-NS's Shawn Webb and Nathan Hilt were third in 1:17.75, with Broughton and Avery Yarn combining for third (1:49.69) in the 400 sprint.

Also for C-NS, Bryan Sibble (third overall) and Paul DeGennaro got fourth in the 1,000-meter run in 5:40.05, where Liverpool was sixth. Anthony Lupia and Matt Crough were fifth in the mile relay in 9:36.52, where Liverpool took seventh and just missed out on points.

The Warriors' lone win came in the shot put, where Geoffrey Bell had the best individual throw of 44'11" and teamed with Anthony Miller for a top distance of 85' 2 1/2", just a quarter-inch ahead of Corcoran.

Travis Chewning-Kulick got second among individuals in the pole vault, clearing 11'9 as Zach Liebmann (Jamesville-DeWitt) won with 12'6", but that was good for fourth-place team points.

Connor Buck and Jake Rowell had Liverpool in third place in the 3,200-meter run in 21:07.08, with C-NS's Colin Greenseich and Chris Hannan fifth.
