C-NS girls track defeats West Genesee

Northstars also thrive in weekend meets at Marcellus, Utica

The Cicero-North Syracuse girls track and field teams worked their way through raw, cold conditions and, getting three titles from Hannah Szumloz, rolled to a 102-38 victory over the Wildcats last Wednesday afternoon at Bragman Stadium.

Szumloz needed 16.6 seconds to earn first place in the 100-meter hurdles. Moving to field events, she went 15 feet 8 inches in the long jump and 31’9” in the triple jump for two more victories.

Elsewhere in field events, Nicole Herringshaw cleared 4’8” in the high jump, while Destiny Monica had a top shot put throw of 34’10” and Shannon Hanmer threw the discus 88’5” to win there.

Back on the oval, Javielle Fanizzi won twice, going 12.7 seconds in the 100-meter dash and adding a title in the 200-meter dash in 27 seconds flat. Madison Kolakowski went 1:12 flat to win the 400 hurdles, with Andrea Stout tearing to a time of 57 seconds in the 400-meter dash.

Beaten by WG in the distance races, C-NS countered in the 4x800 relay, where Kolakowski ran a leg and the Northstars prevailed in 10:53.0.

But that just began the Northstars’ work, as on Saturday it went to the Skaneateles-Marcellus Girls Invitational and recorded a series of high finishes.

C-NS went 1-2 in the shot put, where Monica had a top throw of 33’2 ¼” and Hanmer finished second with a toss of 32’7 ¾”. Hanmer got second place in the discus with a throw of 92’1” as Holland Patent’s Harley Buczkowski (95’10”) prevailed.

In the high jump, Herringshaw cleared 5’1”, the same as East Syracuse-Minoa’s Nina Zesky, but did so with fewer misses to take the title as Brittany House, clearing 4’8”, tied for fifth after a sixth-place effort in the 400 hurdles.

House, Hannah Szumloz, Hannah Nickels and Sasha Pulaski took third in the 4x100 relay in 53.55 seconds, with Marie LeRoy, Rachel Wisely, Kristin Schug and Abbey Szumloz went 4:25.67 in the 4x400 relay to finish fourth.
