Cicero It had not yet warmed up, nor had it dried out too much, by the time Cicero-North Syracuse’s track and field teams hosted its 10th annual Relays last Friday at Bragman Stadium.
But the show went on, and the Northstars, making its 2013 debut, won the team honors on both sides of the ledger, while Liverpool finished second on the girls side.
During that girls meet, C-NS picked up 82 points, to the Warriors’ 58, grabbing high finishes everywhere, but especially in the five field events, where it never finished worst than third.
Javielle Fanizzi won the individual long jump, going 16 feet 10 inches, and teamed with Olivia King (who was fifth) for a winning combined leap of exactly 32 feet, more than a foot better than West Seneca West (30’7”) as Tammy Brodie and Yasmeen Griffin put Liverpool in fourth place.
Meanwhile, in the shot put Destiny Monica had a winning throw of 34’2”, with C-NS teammate Shannon Hanmer third, leading to another title at 64’4” and another fourth-place effort for the Warriors (53’2”).C-NS also had Candace Segars and Brigitte Harris were second in the discus, throwing it 152’6” as Jamesville-DeWitt won with 169’2”.
Liverpool saw Brodie and Jessica Turner combine to win the high jump, combining to clear 9 feet as C-NS (8’10”) tied for second. Then Catherine Rowell and Alexus Gersbacher won the triple jump for the Warriors, going 65’6” between them, with the Northstars’ Jade Jenkins and Hannah Szumloz (64’7”) in the second spot.
Szumloz and Cheyanna Colin both finished in the top five in the 100-meter hurdles, and their combined time of 35.55 seconds held off Rush-Henrietta (35.78 seconds) at the top. Marissa Colburn and Madison Kolakowski got to second place in the 400 hurdles in 2:36.03, with Liverpool’s tandem of Jennifer Higgins and Kristen Jevis in fourth place.
