The effort included a sweep of all three relay races and Taylor Woodruff taking the 100 and 400-meter sprints, plus finishing second in the 200-meter dash.

— Campbell, in 16.27 seconds, was second to Altmar-Parish-Williamstown's Kylee Bartlett (15.32 seconds) in the 100-meter hurdles, and went 1:14.93 to take third place in the 400-meter hurdles.

Eighth-grader Mia Grasso earned third place in the pentathlon with 1,896 points, behind a pair of girls four years older than her, Phoenix's Haylie Virginia (2,691 points) and Westhill/Ludden's Anna Ross (2,484 points).

In field events, Megan Molnar, clearing 8 feet 6 inches, tied for the top effort in the pole vault, but finished second because Westhill/Ludden's Katherine Doherty had fewer misses. Woodruff made her way to third place in the long jump, going 15'7" to give her 34 individual points for the day.

Meanwhile, in the boys OHSL Liberty meet, Skaneateles claimed sixth place, with 49 points, as Jordan-Elbridge, with 106 points, went to the top spot and Solvay (89 points) finished second.

Patrick Biver gave the Lakers a victory in the 400 sprint, where in 51.12 seconds he beat J-E's Dylan Whittico (52.23 seconds) by more than a full second. Later, in the 200, Biver finished second in 23.32 seconds to Whittico, who won in 22.82 seconds.

But Biver was victorious once more in the 4x400, joining Jeff Kringer, James Hackler and Cooper Watt as the Lakers posted a time of 3:35.34, well clear of runner-up Solvay (3:39.42) as no one else broke the 3:40 mark.

The Lakers nearly won the 4x100 here, too, as Kringer, Tommy Hagen, Max Messie and Jacob Peterson finished in 46.78 seconds to finish second behind Institute of Technology Central, who won in 46.08 seconds.

Individually, Kringer made it to third place in the 100 sprint in 11.65 seconds, with Solvay's Nick Cometti (11.33 seconds) prevailing. Watt took fifth place in the 800 in 2:05.42.

Eli Goodell cleared 5'8" in the high jump, also getting to fifth place to go with a seventh (18'4") in the long jump, ahead of Watt in ninth place. Chase Corcoran threw the discus 106'8" and gained sixth place, with Peterson earning a seventh-place triple jump of 36'1 3/4" to just miss the points.

Scott Harrop, Steve Ciaccio, Alex Wulff and Joe Capozza were fifth in the 4x800 relay in 9:48.38. Hagen took eighth in the 110 high hurdles, while Messie was seventh in the pole vault (10 feet) and eighth in the 400 hurdles and Alex VanRiper finished eighth in the pentathlon. Chris Niebuhr was 11th in the mile.
