Marcellus Kaela Fiutak, Erin Tonzi and Madeline Adams each won events as the Skaneateles girls track and field team claimed second place in Monday’s Onondaga High School League Liberty division championship meet at Marcellus.
Fiutak, in the pole vault, did not reach her school-record mark of 10 feet 6 inches, but did clear 9 feet to win the title as teammate Megan Molnar (8’6) slid into third place.
Tonzi would beat the field in the triple jump, going 32’4 ¼” to top Homer’s Sabina Clark (31’7”) and the rest of the field. And Adams would dominate the 3,000-meter run, her time of 10 minutes, 22.07 seconds bettering Cazenovia’s Jeanette Cudney (10:57.99) by more than half a minute.
Skaneateles would also win a relay – the 4x400, where the quartet of Taylor Woodruff, Molly McCarthy, Anna Barnett and Courtney Pitman got a time of 4:18.90, just enough to edge Homer (4:19.33) at the line.
Overall, Skaneateles had 96.5 points, beating most of the field, but not able to catch up from its fellow Lakers from Cazenovia, who won with 195 points.
Mary Buck contended in the pentathlon, picking up 2,121 points and winning three of the five events (800 meters, long jump and high jump), but still settling for second place behind CBA’s Marisa Hamel, who had 2,199 points.
Woodruff, in the 400-meter dash, was second in 59.35 seconds to Cazenovia’s Ashley Winn (57.80), and added a third in the 200-meter dash in 26.69 seconds as McCarthy (28.43 seconds) was fifth. Tonzi got fourth place in the 800-meter run in 2:29.34.
Adams, Tonzi, Kaitlyn Neal and Jenn DeRosa rose to second in the 4x800 relay in 9:57.56, trailing only Westhill/Bishop Ludden (9:54.41). Grace Delasin, Nikki Cole, Corinne LaFrance and Ashley Bonocore took third in the 4x100 relay in 54.98 seconds.
Rachel Baker took fourth in the shot put with a toss of 28’ ¾”, and Woodruff was fifth (13’11 ¾”) in the long jump. Virginia Hamlin was sixth in the 2,000-meter steeplechase in 8:32.98, while Pitman cleared 4’4” to tie for sixth in the high jump.
