Pittman added a pair of victories in the field events as she captured the pole vault (7-0) and triple jump (31-0) for the second straight week. She also added points in the long jump while Hannah Light-Olson picked up third in the triple (29-4). Glenna Kelahan (6-6) and Sammi Marti (6-0) helped Cazenovia to sweep Homer in the pole vault while Molly Woodworth (28-9 in the shot) and Hannah Dain (67-9 in the disc) added points in the throws.

The Lakers took full advantage of their final tune-up meet before the league and sectional championships as they posted a series of impressive performances at the competitive Oneida Invitational.

Winn set a new school and meet record in the 100-meter dash with an incredible 12.38 showing. Biviano broke the school record in the 100-meter hurdles with an equally impressive 15.38 clocking. The speedy duo were joined by Kent and Vogl to set school and meet records as they won the 4x100-meter relay with a section-leading time of 50.38 seconds. Biviano also won the long jump (16-3) and took second in the high jump (5-0) to lead the team in scoring.

Marshall came within two seconds of the 18 year-old school record in the 1,500 as she ran a personal best time of 4:48.83 for third place. Karker also had a best in the 1,500 at 5:10.98 while Cudney (10:50.01) and Tobey (10:57.23) both scored in the 3,000 with personal record times.

Woodworth was sixth in the shot in a personal best 29-2.75 while Bigsby scored in the grueling pentathlon with her best-ever total of 1,709 points to boost the Lakers’ point total to 63. Only class AA schools Fayetteville-Manlius and Rome Free Academy surpassed Cazenovia in the competitive 21 team field.  The Lakers will pursue their third straight section Section III, Class B title at Marcellus on May 24.
