Skaneateles track sides sweep league opener

Boys Lakers edge ITC; girls endure weather at ESM meet

Willcox, clearing 4’4”, was victorious in the high jump. Keely Gregg managed to clear 6’6” for first place in the pole vault, while Morgann Byrne was first in the triple jump, going 29’, and Rachel Baker had a top discus throw of 64’10”.

Two days later, the Skaneateles girls team made its way to the East Syracuse-Minoa Invitational, where the weather turned from warm and windy to cold and wet in the course of the night, cutting short events and compelling some teams to leave early.

Still, the Lakers managed to get 23 points and tie for sixth place in a 21-team field, just five points behind South Jefferson and Remsen (28 points), who tied for second behind Holland Patent (43 points) in the top spot.

Kaitlyn Neal contended in the 3,000, the freshman star getting to a time of 10:45.22, putting her in second place behind CBA’s Megan Ann Pierce (10:40.68) as Adams slid into third place in 10:59.05.

Woodruff, Wetmore, Katelyn Ellison and Laurel Parker nearly won the 4x100, but settled for second place in 54.16 seconds behind Mexico, who won in 53.99 seconds. Campbell got sixth place in the 100 hurdles in 17.48 seconds.
