Boys indoor track Lakers battle at Utica College meet

first_imgMany ambitions remain for the Cazenovia boys indoor track and field team as, in the weeks ahead, it expects to contend for Onondaga High School League and Section III honors in championship meets at SRC Arena.Before that, though, the Lakers gave itself a full examination against a large and talented field in last Friday’s Central New York “Higher, Farther, Faster” Invitational at Utica College’s Hutton Dome.Cazenovia earned 20 points overall, but put together a series of strong efforts against fields packed with large-school powers from both Section III and beyond.Six of those points were from Joe Spires’ efforts in the 55-meter dash. Having qualified in 6.72 seconds to lead the back, Spires ended up third in in the final in 6.68 seconds as Utica Proctor’s Damoy Allen (6.55) won.And six more points were earned by Dalton Sevier, who in the high jump cleared 6 feet 1 inch, not far away from the winning 6’2” from Pulaski’s Xavier Babcock. Dylan Anderson was 12th, clearing 5’6”,Andrew Kent earned fifth place in the 600-meter run in 1:26.57 as Sevier tied for 11th in the pole vault, clearing 10’6”.Spires, Slater DeLeon, Connor Wilson and Andrew Lee got to seventh place in the 4×200 relay in 1:36.50, a race Proctor won with a meet-record 1:31.53.Then Charlie Aronson, Andrew Lansing, Tim Gibbons and Charles Kubiniec were seventh in the sprint medley relay in 4:11.32. DeLeon, in 37.80 seconds, beat out Spires (37.90) for 11th place in the 300-meter dash.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: boys indoor trackCazenovialast_img read more
