SYRACUSE A pair of victories – one on the oval in the sprint medley relay, the other in the high jump – marked the Baldwinsville girls indoor track and field team’s successful season debut.
During last Tuesday night’s Jack Morse Holiday Relays at Colgate University’s Sanford Field House , the Bees managed 36 points, putting them in fourth place among the 20 that earned points. Fayetteville-Manlius and Cicero-North Syracuse tied for the top spot with 50 points as Skaneateles (43 points) finished third.
It was close at the top in the 1,600 sprint medley, but B’ville pulled it out. Katie Wicks, Cierra Allen, Elise Seifritz and Marissa Lathrop posted a time of four minutes, 34.17 seconds, just ahead of Skaneateles, who was second in 4:36.78, less than three seconds back.
Moving to field events, the Bees’ high jump tandem of Emily Soeder and Bryn Judkins came out on top. Soeder cleared 5 feet 2 inches to finish second among individuals behind East Syracuse-Minoa’s Nina Zesky (5’4”), but with Judkins clearing 4’2”, B’ville’s combined 9’4” got past F-M (exactly 9 feet) and the rest of the field.
Together, Hannah Wood (eighth) and Liz Wisely (10th) put the Bees into second place in the 55-meter hurdles, their combined clocking of 20.31 seconds only trailing C-NS (19.51 seconds) at the wire. Julia Kamide and Carrie McNamara were fifth in the shot put, getting combined throws of 56’8” as McNamara was ninth (29’ ½”) among individuals.
Hailey Couchman, eighth in the long jump (13’10 ½”), and Hannah Moyer were fifth in that event with leaps of 26’6 ¼” between them, while Hailey Jaquint went 31’ feet in the triple jump for sixth place as she and Kayleigh Sattler produced another fifth-place finish, going 59’3”.
Allen, Mia Bolton, Nadine Dickter and Kelley Hull made it to sixth place in the distance medley relay in 13:55.05, while Brittany LaRock cleared 6’6” in the pole vault and earned a sixth-place point.
