Track Bees win big in weekend meets

Boys second in Arcaro Relays; Ross, Allen lead girls at Marcellus

Sam Smith made his way to the runner-up spot in the pentathlon, his 2,205 points only trailing C-NS’s Morgan Austen (2,726 points) as Smith’s teammate, Harrison Warner, was sixth.

A day later, when the B’ville girls team made it to the Skaneateles-Marcellus meet, Mackenzie Ross posted the fastest 800-meter time of the Section III season, winning that race in 2:17.91, more than seven seconds ahead of the field.

Cierra Allen added another victory when she sped through the 400 hurdles in 1:09.18, exactly one second better than West Canada Valley’s Mikey Maxwell (1:11.18) at the top. Allen, Katie Wicks, Marissa Lathrop and Angelica Tomasello would combine to win the 4x400 relay, their time of 4:12.35 more than 14 seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

Elsewhere, Rachel Miller was third in the 1,500-meter run in 4:59.74, with Annie Peterson seventh. Marissa Lathrop (1:00.83) and Katie Wicks (1:03.35) were fourth and fifth, respectively, in the 400-meter dash, with Emily Thompson roaring to third place in the 3,000-meter run in 11:28.23.

Hannah Wood took fifth (17.53 seconds) in the 100-meter hurdles final and Meghan Hull was fifth (8:09.48) in the 2,000 steeplechase, ahead of Julia Johnson in eighth place. Angelica Tomasello was sixth in the 200-meter dash.

In field events, Emily Soeder was fourth in the high jump, clearing 5 feet, while Lauren Fisher tied for fifth in the pole vault. Carlie McNamara was fifth (80’9”) in the discus and 10th in the shot put as Melissa Voyer took fourth in the triple jump (32’3 ¾”) and eighth in the long jump.

This followed a pair of close and exciting meets last Wednesday against C-NS. In both cases, the Bees would fall to the Northstars, including a narrow 71-70 defeat in the girls portion at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium.

B’ville won two of the three girls relays. Tomasello, Allen, Gabby Jordan and Ashley Pesano beat C-NS in the 4x100 relay in 51.3 seconds, while Ross helped the Bees win the 4x800 in 10:12.1.
