Wicks, Soeder, Mahar among individual champions

Liz Wisely (17.59 seconds) and Hannah Wood (17.64 seconds) were fifth and sixth, respectively, in the 100-meter hurdles, while Dominique LaPointe got to sixth (1:12.41) in the 400 hurdles.

Hannah Moyer was seventh and Jaquint 10th in the long jump. Shylea Dukat was eighth and Madison Gonzalez ninth in the 3,000-meter run.

Just down the road, at Liverpool High School Stadium, B’ville’s boys track team was fourth in the CNYCL National meet, even though it scored more points (94) than the girls did. F-M, with 148 points, beat Liverpool by one point for the title as C-NS (126 points) was third.

Brian Mahar was victorious in the 100 and 200 sprints, his time of 12.08 seconds in the 100 just enough to hold off Liverpool’s Brandon Mayfield, who edged out Jeff Mahar for second place, even though both of them finished in 12.13 seconds.

Then, in the 200, Mahar went 24.23 seconds to get past F-M’s Parker Noble (24.35 seconds) by a similar margin as in the 100, while Dan Walker finished third in 24.48 seconds.

To cap off his day, Mahar teamed with Walker, plus David Mazurkiewicz and Connor Lunduski, as B’ville won the 4x100 in 45.84 seconds, with Liverpool (46.30 seconds) nearly half a second behind.

Jeff Mahar also was second (50.37 seconds) to F-M’s Kyle Barber (49.91 seconds) in the 400 sprint, where Brennan LaQue (53.71 seconds) finished fifth. Dante Giannino rose to third place in the long jump, going 19’3 ½”, with Martin Sak in seventh place, as Austin Catalano went exactly 38 feet in the triple jump for fourth place.

Evan Donhauser, in 16.89 seconds, took third in the 110 high hurdles, ahead of teammate Sam Smith (17.51 seconds) in fourth place, with Smith (who was 10th in the triple jump) also fourth in the 400 hurdles in 1:01.22, where Josh Perez was sixth. Mike Boyce was seventh in the 3,000-meter steeplechase.
