C-NS boys, Liverpool girls second at Constantino meet

Webb claims boys 300; Akinpelu prevails twice for Warriors

Back at SRC Arena a night later for the girls portion of the Constantino meet, it was Liverpool working its way to second place in the team standings, earning 51 points to top everyone except F-M, who won again with 90 points. C-NS, with 26 points, finished sixth.

Again, Ore Akinpelu proved the Warriors’ biggest star. The Liverpool sophomore held off Cazenovia’s Ashley Winn, 41.85 seconds to 41.93, for a victory in the 300-meter dash, and combined with Yasmeen Griffin, Catherine Rowell and Danielle Sims to win the 4x400 in 4:17.93, more than seven seconds ahead of F-M (4:21.93) in the runner-up spot.

Angela Kulpa, clearing 8’6” in the pole vault, finished second behind West Genesee’s Nina Zesky (10 feet). Rowell, on her own, went 33’1 ¼” in the triple jump, sliding into third place, while Tammy Brodie added a third in the long jump, going 15’8 ½”, and took seventh in the high jump.

Jazmine Herbert was fifth (7.80 seconds) in the 55 sprint, where Alexus Gersbacher was seventh. Juliana Basla was sixth (1:45.54) in the 600 as the Warriors were also seventh in the 4x200, just out of the points.

Javielle Fanizzi gained 12 of C-NS’s 26 points by herself. Fanizzi had a second-place triple jump of 33’11”, just behind F-M’s Christabel Ezidiegwu (34’3 ¼”), while teammate Jade Jenkins (32’1”) was fourth. Fanizzi would add a fourth-place long jump of 15’3 ¾”.

C-NS went to fourth place in the 4x800 relay as Emily Dolan, Alexandra Pirro, Victoria Pirro and Amanda Shuman posted a time of 10:42.84. The Northstars also had Nicole Watterud finish sixth (11:24.99) in the 3,000-meter run as Destiny Monica rose to sixth in the shot put.
