Boys Northstars, girls Warriors both finish second to F-M

— When it came to the girls Kirschenheiter meet, Liverpool topped C-NS in a big way, and with 46 points, the Warriors slid into second place behind F-M (81 points) as the Northstars, with 16 points, tied for 10th place.

Liverpool’s lone win came in the 4x200 relay, where Ore Akinpelu, Jazmine Herbert, Danielle Sims and Catherine Rowell crushed the field with a time of 1:49.12, more than five seconds ahead of runner-up Corcoran (1:54.23).

Individually, Akinpelu gained third place in the 600 in 1:42.95, while Herbert needed 7.72 seconds to finish third in the 55 sprint. Rowell had a sixth-place long jump of 31’4”. Morgan Mahoney was fourth in the 3,000-meter run in 10:35.81, just ahead of C-NS’s Nicole Watterud (10:47.41) in fifth.

Yasmeen Griffin, Dana Brown, Jessica Turner and Kristen Jevis were third in the 4x400 relay in 4:29.43. Mahoney, Abby McNamara, Juliana Basla (who was seventh in the 1,500-meter run) and Jillian Stagnitta got to fourth place in the 4x800 in 10:18.11.

Moving to the pole vault, Shae Shenandoah cleared 8 feet, also earning third place as Megan Molnar (Skaneateles) won with 8’6”. C-NS’s Whitney Hotchkiss tied for fifth as the Warriors’ Nelliah Watkins earned sixth place in the shot put.

Half of the Northstars’ points came from the long jump, where Javielle Fanizzi went 16’2 ½”, which was second to Jamesville-DeWitt’s Sierra Vasiliou (17’ ¾”). Fanizzi’s teammate, Hannah Szumloz, earned fourth place in the 55 hurdles in 9.46 seconds, ahead of Liverpool’s Tammy Brodie (9.81 seconds) in fifth place.

Everyone now could look ahead to the CNY Counties League championship meets, with the boys competing Thursday and the girls on Friday at SRC Arena.
