Liverpool boys runners fall to West Genesee

C-NS sweeps B'ville, takes boys Tully Invitational

Paul DeGennaro, in 16:36.8, claimed fourth place, with Chris Hannan fifth (16:43.4) and Eric Bowen (17:20.4) claiming sixth place. Joe Tricarico also ran well, getting to ninth place in 18:04.2, with Brian Traub (18:07.5) in 10th place.

Though the girls meet had teams at full strength on both sides, C-NS still managed to prevail, led by Jacqlynn Halstead, whose time of 19:24.2 allowed her to pull away from the B’ville trio of Marissa Lathrop (19:40.9), Rachael Miller (19:57.4) and Mia Bolton (20:25.5).

The Northstars also swept the rest of the top 10. Jilliann Norris, in fifth place in 20:31.5, led that pack, with Madison Kolakowski sixth (20:43.3) and Taylor Parry (20:47.6) in seventh. Lauren Carr took eighth place in 20:58 flat as Madison Gross (20:59.1) and Savannah Stevens (21:23.2) made her way to 10th place.

Not stopping there, the C-NS boys would also prevail Saturday at the Tully Invitational, earning 43 points to defeat Central Square (60 points) and a state no. 1-ranked Fayetteville-Manlius squad (73 points) missing its top runners, Bryce Millar and Andrew Berge’.

Greenseich took third place among individuals in a time of 16:48.4, with Bearkland gaining fifth place in 16:50.1. Hannan, with a time of 17:01.1, earned eighth place as Bowen was 13th (17:31.1), just ahead of DeGennaro (17:37.7) in 14th place. Tricarico (18:01.6) beat out Jared George (18:03.0) for 22nd place as Brian Traub, in 18:24.5, gained 33rd place.

Meanwhile, the C-NS girls finished second (56 points) to F-M (34 points), but saw Halstead win the individual race as, in a time of 19:39.1, she held off Cortland’s Hayley Tasselmeyer (19:42.0) for the victory.

F-M, though also missing some of its top girls runners (including Annika Avery and Alana Pearl), still had too much depth to be stopped, but Norris still finished ninth in 20:28.3, while Kolakowski got 13th place in 20:57.6. Stevens (21:19.8), Gross (21:27.7) and Carr (21:33.8) claimed the 16th through 18th spots, while Parry finished 22nd in 22:06.8.
