— At the close of its OHSL Liberty division slate, the Skaneateles girls track and field teams would stand in second place with a 7-1 mark, the lone blemish coming against Cazenovia.

In the regular-season finale Tuesday at Alibrandi Stadium, the Lakers roared to a pair of victories in a three-way meet, topping host Christian Brothers Academy 89-24 and routing Hannibal by a 100-24 margin.

Madeline Adams, owner of the fastest 1,500-meter time of the season (4:52.1, done on this same track at the May 4 Brother Basilian Invitational), settled for 5:02.6, but still won as she also roared to first place in the 3,000-meter run in 10:46.3.

Taylor Woodruff claimed the long jump, going 15 feet 9 inches, while Erin Tonzi unleashed a top triple jump of 32’4”. Molly McCarthy was first in the 200-meter dash in 28.6 seconds as Sophie Darovskikh earned first in the 400 hurdles.

Skaneateles swept all three relays. Woodruff, McCarthy, Anna Barnett and Ashley Bonocore ran the 4x100 in 53.1 seconds, while Jenn DeRosa and Courtney Pitman joined Barnett and McCarthy in the 4x400 (4:31.2). Pitman, Tonzi, DeRosa and Liz Dwyer worked together as Skaneateles claimed the 4x800 relay in 10:27.8.

In the simultaneous boys meet, Skaneateles beat Hannibal 78-64, but lost to CBA 83-58 as the Brothers clinched the league regular-season title with a perfect 8-0 mark.

Khiary Gale still had a top triple jump of 44 feet 3 inches, while Sam Goodell went 19’1” and won the long jump. Jordan Schwab chimed in during the pole vault, clearing 11’3”.

On the oval, Malik Merritt claimed the 200-meter dash in exactly 24 seconds, just as Taylor Weyneth went 1:00.9 to win the 400 hurdles. For CBA, Dan Predmore had a discus throw of 149’6” as Brendan Smith earned titles in the mile and 3,200-meter run.
