On both ends, the Liverpool track and field teams toyed with Henninger on Wednesday afternoon at Sunnycrest Field’s oval, beating the Black Knights 114-19 on the boys side and 101-31 on the girls side.
Joe Spernyak led the boys Warriors as he sped to wins in the 110-meter high hurdles (15.4 seconds) and 400-meter hurdles, where he posted a time of 1:02.5.
Zavon Watkins went to the 400-meter dash and covered it in 50.9 seconds, while Mychal Ostuni won at 800 meters (2:14.5). Anthony Brais prevailed in the mile (5:03.3) and Brandon Rudd needed 11:44.8 to prevail at 3,200 meters.
Tony Shuler backed up his 100-meter title (11.2 seconds) by also claiming the triple jump, going 40 feet 6 inches. Other wins went to Jason Osborne (shot put, 45 feet 8 inches), Jackson O’Connor (discus, 117 feet 2 inches) and Joe Alvarado (long jump, 17 feet 7 inches.

Meanwhile, in the girls meet, Lesley Bowers and Tatiana Gladney both won two events. In Bowers’ case, that meant claiming the 1,500-meter run (5:08 flat) and needing 11:28.8 to prevail in the 3,000-meter run.
