Molly Woodworth (left) and Carly Hazer both had personal best performances as they helped lead the Lakers to their third consecutive Mohawk Valley Championship on Jan. 10.
Captain Paige Biviano won the 55-meter hurdles in 9.19 for Cazenovia’s eighth track victory of the night. Biviano also led the way in the field, winning the long jump and taking second in the high jump. She had plenty of company as Cazenovia placed three athletes in every field event. Beth Marcelle and Liz Pittman (personal best of 14-3.5) joined her in the long jump while Marie Sugio and Allissa Parrella both added points in the high jump.
Liz Pittman also led Cazenovia in the triple jump (second, 29-1) with Maureen Milmoe (third, 28-10) and Megan Stanford (fourth, 28-5.5) close behind. Molly Woodworth led the throwers with a personal best of 30-2.5 in the shot, good for second place. Carly Hazer also had her best throw in the shot (25-1.5) for fourth. Freshman Sarah Haley scored in the shot and led the Lakers in the 20 pound weight throw with a personal best of 25-8 (second place). Woodworth and Hazer also scored there for the Lakers.
The pole-vaulting trio of Glenna Kelehan, Marla VanNieuwland and Annika Christensen all cleared heights to score for Cazenovia in their event to top off the Lakers’ impressive 209.5 point total.
The Lakers were delayed by the Jan. 13 snow day, competing at OCC on Jan. 16, and will then train for 10 days in preparation for their final regular season meet on Jan. 27.
