Northstars avenge regular-season loss to Warriors

— The Warriors' Ryheim Lawes won the 100-meter dash in 10.81 seconds to the 11.29 seconds posted by Broughton in second place. Then Lawes completed his sprint sweep by going 200 meters in 22.31 seconds, again with Broughton second (23.08 seconds) as Webb was fourth.

Alex Christensen helped Liverpool by winning the mile in 4:38.11, with Ben Petrella (4:39.39) in third place as the Northstars' Anthony Lupia (4:39.45) was fourth. Petrella saved his best effort for the 3,200-meter run, where he won in 10:05.71 to Lupia's 10:10.41, with LeClair third (10:15.33) and Gill fifth.

Christensen added a third-place time of 2:04.73 in the 800 as Brockton Barton was fourth in the 400 sprint, with Gaurab Bhattacharya fourth in the 400 hurdles.

In field events, C-NS earned a victory when Joe Castaldo, in the shot put, threw it 48 feet 10 inches, with Liverpool's Geoffrey Bell third as he tossed it 45'3 1/2". Later, Costaldo, with a discus throw of 125'2", was third, ahead of Logan Lickfield in fifth, but behind the Warriors' Chris Granell (126'5") in second place.

Liverpool struck when Travis Chewning-Kulick cleared 12 feet in the pole vault and beat C-NS's Tate LaPorte (11'3") and Connor Osborne (11 feet) to prevail, with the Warriors' Gavin Youker in fifth place.

Mark Vanmarter, fifth in the 200 sprint, made his way to the top in the long jump for Liverpool, going exactly 21 feet, with Lawes (19'4 1/2") in third place and the Northstars' Bryson Mayes fifth.

Not stopping there, Vanmarter, with a triple jump of 42'10", edged the C-NS duo of Austen (42'2") and Mayes (40'10") as they swept the top three. The Northstars' Marquis Banister made his way to second place, clearing 6 feet, as George Reader was fifth, with Liverpool's Zach Harris and Nate Guarante fourth and sixth, respectively.

All of these athletes will be back at Bragman Stadium next Wednesday to duel with the likes of Fayetteville-Manlius in the Section III Class AA championship meet.
