Paige Biviano, shown above competing at last spring’s NYS Championship Meet, has set three school records for Cazenovia this season, setting new marks in the high jump, long jump and 55 meter hurdles as she has led the Lakers to wins in their first five invitational meets.
The Cazenovia girls indoor track team remained unbeaten as they won three meets in an eight-day span. The Lady Lakers virtually rewrote the school record book along the way as they broke 10 records, bringing their season total to 12 out of the 24 events for which records are kept.
The team has won its first five invitational meets to open the 2011-12 season.
Cazenovia opened its run of record performances at the Dec. 30 DiMao Memorial Invitational hosted by Colgate. Cazenovia scored 146.5 points to double the totals of the second and third place finishers Rome Free Academy (71) and Clinton (70) and dominate the ten team field.
The Lakers opened the meet with a bang as Ashley Winn, Emily Willard, Ashley Kent and Jill Vogl won the 4x200 meter relay in a school-record time of 1:51.88, the fastest time in Section III this year.
In the second event on the track, Caroline Marshall smashed the 1500 meter run record, winning in an exceptional 4:57.36, the third fastest in all of Central New York this season.
After wins in the 600-meter by Megan Stanford (1:52.04), and 1-2 finishes by Ashley Winn and Jill Vogl in both the 55 and 300 meter dashes, Paige Biviano made the next record book entry, improving on her own mark in the 55 hurdles at 9.27 seconds. She also won the long jump (15-10.5) and took second in the high jump (5-1).
Molly Woodworth (28-5 in the shot) and the 4x400 and 4x800 meter relays were also winners for Cazenovia as the team scored in every event to achieve their winning point total.
Paige Biviano maintained her hot streak as she led the Lakers to victory in the Mohawk Valley Partner Relays on Jan. 3. Cazenovia scored 138 points to top the 11 team field as they won ten of 17 events including nine of 11 on the track. Biviano improved on her own mark in the hurdles, winning in 9.12 seconds and set a new record in the long jump with a leap of 16-10.5, the best in the section this year.
