West Genny also nabs wins in New Hartford, Rome events

The Wildcats’ Pete Richardson again tore it up in the 400-meter hurdles, hitting the line in 57.12 seconds, half a second better than C-NS’s Pete Girardi (57.62) to claim first place. Marcellus’ Justin Garn was seventh.

WG’s other victory came in the shot put, where David Martin, with a throw of 49 feet 9 ½ inches, had enough to hold off Rome Free Academy’s Robert Alder (48’11 ½”) and prevent Alder from a throwing sweep, as he had already won the discus.

During the 800-meter run, Jack Erhard finished second, in 2:00.12, to Liverpool’s Alex Christensen (1:57.52), while Erhard’s teammate, Logan McAnulty, was fourth in 2:02.24.

Kal Strickland took fifth place (4:38.57) in the mile, while Marcellus’ Matt Raymond landed in fifth place in the discus with a throw of 129’11”.

As that went on, Jordan-Elbridge’s boys team went to the CBA Brother Basilian Invitational, where Jack Gugel took second in the mile, just edged out at the wire by Sauquoit Valley’s Nick Spina, who won with 4:36.6 to Gugel’s 4:37 flat. Dylan Whittico was fourth in the 100-meter dash (11.3 seconds) and 200-meter dash (23.6 seconds), while Justin Quinn was sixth (107’2”) in the discus.

In Rome a day later, J-E’s girls ended up with seven points, most of them from the 1,600 sprint medley as Julie Hines, Brianna Byrnes, Mary Elizabeth Dristle and Emily Weichert took third place in 4:31.11. On her own, Hines was sixth in the 200-meter dash in 27.38 seconds.
