SYRACUSE In between league and sectional championship outings, Cazenovia’s girls indoor track and field team would test itself – and find plenty of success – in Tuesday night’s Section III Select Meet at Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena.
This was especially true for senior Paige Biviano, who twice beat elite fields. In the long jump, Biviano crushed the competition, her leap of 16 feet 8 ½ inches nearly a foot and a half better than the runner-up, Cicero-North Syracuse’s Jade Jenkins (15 feet 4 ½ inches).
Moving to the 55-meter hurdles, Biviano did not have to worry about C-NS star Katie Osborne, and she rolled to victory in 8.94 seconds, with Homer’s Jekeytha Adkins (9.27 seconds) taking the runner-up spot. Chittenango’s Theresa Parascandola was 12th in 10.69 seconds. In the high jump, Biviano cleared 5 feet 1 inches, taking fifth place.
Jillian Vogl also won for the Lakers, in the 300-meter dash. The senior, headed for Monmouth University for field hockey, posted a time of 42.66 seconds, enough to fend off Skaneateles’ Emma Ford (42.95 seconds) and the rest of the field. Vogl also was fifth (7.73 seconds) in the 55-meter dash.
Caroline Marshall, Grace Milmoe, Jeannette Cudney and Megan Stanford combined to give the Lakers a second-place finish in the 4x800 relay in 10:14.81 as Fayetteville-Manlius (9:34.81) prevailed.
Marshall, on her own, was fourth in the 1,000-meter run in 3:05.81, while Cudney was fifth (10:58.44) in the 3,000-meter run and Stanford took eighth (1:49.03) in the 600-meter run. Molly Woodworth was seventh in the shot put (28 feet 3 inches) as Liz Pittman gained 13th in the triple jump.
Vogl, Ashley Kent, Jessie Matt and Anna Schultz got ninth in the 4x200 relay (1:57.71), with Kent joining Grace Milmoe Emma Wolsey and Maureen Milmoe for10th in the 4x400 relay.
In the boys Select Meet, Cameron Braathen rose to fourth in the shot put, tossing it exactly 42 feet. David Ayer, Matt Donovan, Anthony Randino and Doyle Judge were fifth in the 4x200 in 1:40.34. Sean Satchwell took 11th in the 3,200-meter run.
Chittenango’s Jason Given claimed second place in the 600 in 1:28.47, beaten only by F-M’s Langston Lightcap (1:25.36). Given’s teammate, Lucas Rogers, was 11th in the 1,000.
Now it’s on to the Section III championships, also at SRC Arena, with the class AA and A meet set for Friday at 4:30 and the B and C/D meet to follow Saturday, starting at 10 a.m.
