The Cazenovia girls indoor track team turned in another dominating performance to win its second straight OHSL title on Jan. 31. The Lady Lakers outran their Liberty-Patriot Division rivals Skaneateles 151 to 101 to claim the championship in the 13-team field.
Cazenovia scored in every event and claimed first team all-league honors in seven events in the victory as the team remained undefeated in the 2011-12 campaign.
Senior Captain Paige Biviano led the Lakers to victory, earning first team all-league honors in three events and posting the best performance in all of Section III in two of them. Biviano’s time of 8.83 in the 55-meter hurdles set a new school record and was the fastest in CNY this season. Her long jump of 16-11.75 also improved her own school mark and was tops in the region this year.
She also high jumped 5-2 to claim first place in that event. Biviano had support in each event as freshman Ashley Kent was fourth in the hurdles in 10.15, Liz Pittman was fifth in the long jump at 14-9.5 and Emily Willard was third in the high jump at 4-6.
Pittman also took fifth in the triple jump at 30-8.5, just behind Maureen Milmoe who had a career-best jump of 31-4 for fourth place. Molly Woodworth took fourth in the shot put with a 29-0.5 effort while Annika Christensen had her best effort in the pole vault, clearing 6-0 on her first attempt for fifth place.
On the track, Senior Captain Jill Vogl was a double winner for the Lakers. Vogl won the 300 in 42.61 and led off the winning 4x200 of Anna Schultz, Jessie Matt and Ashley Kent (1:56.18). She also took second in the 55-dash (7.73) behind speedy teammate Ashley Winn (7.58). Winn was also second in the 300 (42.89) and anchored the 4x400 relay (4:29.88) of Megan Stanford, Jackie O’Sullivan and Grace Milmoe to a second place finish with a 1:01.0 split.
