In a spring full of high honors as it swept through the OHSL Liberty division, the Cazenovia girls track and field team had one more goal to achieve – and it got there.
The Lakers are now the newly-minted Section III Class B-1 champions, having gone to the top in Thursday’s sectional meet at Solvay High School by earning 137 points, with Phoenix taking second place (95 points) and those other Lakers from Skaneateles in third with 92.5 points.
Paige Biviano again earned lots of points – 32 by herself. Her lone win came in the 100-meter high hurdles, with Biviano needing just 16.32 seconds to ease to first place.
In the high jump, Biviano cleared 5 feet for second place, one inch behind Clinton’s Eliza Bell. She also got second in the long jump (16 feet 8 3/4 inches) to Phoenix’s Ashley Palmer, while teammate Audrey Bowers was third (15 feet 8 3/4 inches). Finally, Biviano had a third-place triple jump of 32 feet 5 inches where, again, Palmer came out on top.
Over in the sprints, Gianforte, Bowers, Jillian Vogl and Ashley Winn needed 51.47 seconds to beat South Jefferson by 2.30 seconds and win the 4×100 relay.
This came after Gianforte cleared 9 feet and won the pole vault because she had fewer misses than South Jefferson’s Emmaline Voss. Winn again lived up to her name when she took the 400-meter dash in 1:00.49, nearly a full second ahead of South Jefferson’s Skylar Pastor.
Vogl was third in the 200-meter dash in 27.59 seconds, edging out Winn (27.61) in fourth. Vogl also took fourth in the 100-meter dash, with Bowers in sixth place.
