SYRACUSE Already with the Section III Class B title in its possession, the Westhill/Bishop Ludden girls indoor track and field team wanted to add an Onondaga High School League championship, too.
But the Warriors could not quite pull it off in last Thursday night’s league meet at SRC Arena, earning 89.5 points to finish second in Division 1 behind Jamesville-DeWitt’s 102 points. Marcellus was fifth, with 41 points.
One win for Westhill/Ludden came in the 55-meter dash, where Tatiana Monds prevailed in 7.56 seconds, just ahead of Marcellus’ Abby Fallon (7.70 seconds) in third place.
Monds would finish second (44.55 seconds) to Fowler’s Nytasia Survia (44.15 seconds) in the 300-meter dash, where Shelby Stack (45.68 seconds) finished fourth.
During the 4x800 relay, Westhill/Ludden got first place as Genny Corcoran, Erin Christensen, Erin Morrell and Annibel Coolican got a time of 10:12.13, leaving Fulton (10:16.98) and the field behind.
Also, Monds, Stack, Olivia Dagineau and Katherine Doherty took second place in the 4x200 relay in 1:53.38, with Mexico (1:51.99) in first. Morrell, Christensen and Dagineau and Sam Toscano were second in the 4x400 relay in 4:31.30 as Homer (4:26.52) prevailed.
Bella Sterly, with a throw of 33 feet 6 ¼ inches, beat Marcellus’ Suzanna Sylcox (31’11”) in the shot put as Solvay’s Samantha Waters (28’6”) was fourth.
Rachel Garn again starred for Marcellus, as she won the 1,000-meter run in 3:03.09, with Coolican second (3:04.84) and Corcoran third (3:12.09) for Westhill/Ludden and Eliza Bell sixth for the Mustangs. Coolican later finished third in the 600-meter run in 1:43.66.
In the 1,500-meter run, Garn, in 5:03.02, edged out East Syracuse-Minoa’s Natalie Marra (5:03.84), with Corcoran (5:07.79) in fifth place. The Mustangs also excelled in the high jump, where Mary-Catherine Coon cleared 4’8” to take third place.
Molly Clark and Caroline Coates were fifth and sixth, respectively, in the 3,000-meter run for the Warriors, who also had Doherty fifth and Noelle Coolican fourth (7’6”) in the pole vault. Christensen took sixth in the high jump.
