Marcellus, Westhill split track showdown

Garn sweeps girls distance events; Wilkinson also triple winner

— Casey Bunce, who won the 800 in 2:04.4, and Xavier Fleurinor, victorious in the 110 high hurdles (17.0 seconds), combined with St. Amour and Peter Guy for a 4x400 win in 3:51.7. Jordan Roland cleared 5’8” in the high jump and Vincenzo Carr won the mile in 5:01.4.

Amid all this, Marcellus standout Ryan Manahan did take the 3,200-meter run in 10:19.1, while Justin Garn was first in the 400 hurdles in 1:01.3. Garn, Manahan, David Stopen and Tristen Duger prevailed in the 4x800 (9:03.0) as Dan O’Connell went 19’1” in the long jump and Mike Abbott topped 8 feet to win the pole vault.

Jordan-Elbridge split last Tuesday’s meet with Skaneateles, the Eagles winning 74-67 on the girls side but falling to the Lakers 95-45 in the girls meet.

A key for the J-E boys was winning two of the three relays. Dylan Whittico, Nate Hollis, Jake Patterson and Bill DiRenzo combined to take the 4x800 (8:54.9), and the Eagles got the clinching points in the 4x400 when Austin Whittico joined DiRenzo, Patterson and Dylan Whittico to outlast Skaneateles, 3:37.4 to 3:39 flat, in a tense 4x400 final.

Dylan Whittico got a rare double by winning the 100-meter dash (11.3 seconds) and 800-meter run (2:10.1), while Jack Gugel swept the mile (5:12.3) and 3,200-meter run (11:22.5).

DiRenzo got his own double by running the 200 in 24.1 seconds and edging the Lakers’ Patrick Biver in the 400 sprint, though both finished in 51.9 seconds. Tyler May won both throwing events, tossing the shot put 43 feet 8 inches and the discus 114 feet 5 inches.

Micah Quigley took second (104’9”) in the discus, with Nick Parkolap second in the triple jump by going 35’5” and Austin Whittico recording a second-place long jump of 17’4”.

In the girls meet, J-E’s Danielle Clark swept the throwing events, with a top shot put toss of 28’4” and a winning discus throw of 79’ ½”. Julie Hines claimed both the 100 (13.3 seconds) and 200 (26.8 seconds) sprints and teamed with Brianna Byrnes, Brittany Harris and Emily Weichert to get first place in the 4x400 relay in 4:23.8.
