Neal also helped Dwyer, Willcox and Gaffney as Skaneateles took the 4x800 relay in 10:23.5. On her own, Willcox was first in the 400 hurdles in 1:16.6.

Reneah Campbell needed 17.5 seconds to beat the field in the 100-meter hurdles, as Barnett took the 400-meter dash in 1:06.9. The Lakers’ 4x100 relay quartet of Wetmore, Ellison, Corrine LaFrance and Laurel Parker was first in 53.3 seconds.

Over in field events, Woodruff went 15 feet 2 inches to take the long jump. Morgann Byrne went 29’4 ½” to claim the triple jump as Gregg cleared 6’6” in the pole vault.

In the boys meet, the Lakers won four of the six field events, including the pole vault, where Carson Schwab cleared 11 feet to edge teammate Dan Sakal (10 feet) for the top spot.

Cooper Watt prevailed in the high jump, clearing 5’4”, and was second in the 3,200-meter run, while Patrick Biver went 39’1 ½” for a comfortable win in the triple jump. As for the long jump, Aristotle Hristodoulou went 17’11” for another first-place finish.

Biver lost a tense 400-meter dash to J-E’s Bill DiRenzo, though both finished in 51.9 seconds. Dan Kringer beat Schwab, 19.4 seconds to 19.7, in the 110 high hurdles as Matt Clymer covered the 400 hurdles in 1:05.8 for another victory. Schwab also was second (12.1 seconds) in the 100-meter dash.

Skaneateles claimed just one of the three relays – the 4x100, where Kringer, helped by the likes of Dan Wolfanger, Nick Smolenski and Max Dwyer, won in 46.6 seconds. Clymer, Wolfanger, Smolenski and Biver were a close second (3:39 flat) to J-E (3:37.4) in the 4x400. Chris Niehbur got second place in the mile in 5:15.8 as the Eagles Jack Gugel (5:12.3) prevailed.
