Baldwinsville’s boys track and field team once again served as host for Saturday’s John Arcaro Relays at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, where it would take second place in an 11-team field amid cold, wet and windy conditions.
Overall, the Bees had 97 points, beating everyone except Cicero-North Syracuse, who went to the top spot with 126 points.
B’ville had three first-place finishes, including the 4×400 relay, where Ethan Pacheck, Jeff Pond, Jeff Mahar and Alex Malecki won a thriller, edging Corcoran, 3:43.0 to 3:43.1.
Antonio Peck, Rudy Sapp, Parker Kiff and Nate Wicks finished the 4×200 relay in 1:37.4, beating Corcoran by 1.8 seconds. In the 3,000-meter steeplechase, Shaun Thompson and Josh Perez rolled to victory in a combined 20:33.7, with no one else under 22 minutes.
Jon Hingre and Andrew Hoover got second in the 400-meter hurdles in 2:07.1, just one-tenth of a second behind Chittenango. The Bees also were second in both the 1,600 sprint medley relay, where Wicks, Mahar, Ethan Pacheck and Alex Malecki posted a time of 3:55.8, and the 4×100 relay, where Peck, Sapp, Wicks and Kiff finished in 46.3 seconds.
Plus, there were third-place finishes in the distance medley relay (11:44.0), 1,000 sprint medley (2:08.9), 4×1,600 (20:38.0) and discus, where Mark Stanard and Pat Miller combined for throws of 197 feet 9 inches. B’ville was fourth in the long jump (two leaps adding up to 29 feet 7 inches) and weight throw (68 feet 2 inches), too.
