2015 Indoor Track Week #3 (Dec.19-20)

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

DeAngelis and Noble ranked 1st in the State

I missed last week’s HUGE 37-02 triple jump by Spencerport’s Darcy DeAngelis which leads the state by half a foot!

CJ Noble of Greece Olympia lowered his state leading mark in the 55 a bit more to 6.51, and Byron Hearst of Greece Arcadia ran 6.56 to make the 2nd fastest in the state so far.  Byron won the 300 with 35.60 and his 35.41 from last week is 4th in the state.  Lanae-Tava Thomas of Rush Henrietta matched her SVSB of 7.30 which ranks 3rd in the state.

The pole vaulters are starting strong with Zoe Camillaci of Hilton tied for 2nd best mark in the state at 11-6 and Earnie Burapan (Hilton) at 10-6 tied for 7th statewide.  For the boys Kevin Palmisano of Canandaigua busted it out with a 14 footer to tie for 2nd highest in the state, Ethan Maguire (Penfield) and Jared Matthews (Fairport) both made 13-6, Ethan’s 13-7 from last week is tied for 5th in the state.

Anthony Clark of Gates-Chili who is the only Section V hurdler to break 8 so far this season. lowered it even further to 7.70 to tie for 2nd best mark in the state. Meaghan Schwartz (also of Gates) lowered her SVSB to 8.75 and ranks 13th statewide, with Alana Morrow of Mercy right behind at 8.76.

Ryan McQuillen of LeRoy set a new SVSB in the long jump at 22-01.50 to rank 4th in the state, his 44-1 triple jump from last week ranks 8th.

Christian Johnson of Victor is manhandling the rest of Section V and showing up high on the state leaderboards.  He increased his shot put to 52-04 for 6th in the state and his 52’ weight throw from last week ranks 5th in the state.  Ana Santiago of East made a new SVSB in the girls weight throw at 33-06.50 for 14th in the state.

Sammy and Ceara Watson of Rush crushed the field in the 600.  Sammy’s winning time of 1:38.32 ranks 7th in the state and Sammy’s 40.62 in the 300 from last week also ranks 7th in the state and 1st among sophomores and younger.

Emily Sheck of Webster Schroeder lowered the boom on the distance runners clocking a 10:37.64 in the 3000 to rank 7th in the state.  Scheck ran again later the same night and won her group in the 1500, but the fastest time of the weekend was by Autumn Albrecht of Brockport who lowered her SVSB to 4:57.09 and ranks 12th in the state.   Everett Geiger of Caledonia-Mumford and sophomore Paul Dellinger of Brighton ran away from the boys 3200 field with Geiger winning at 9:57.16 to rank 11th in the state and Dellinger coming in at 9:58.73 to rank 13th (2nd in the state among sophomores and younger).  Nick Neamtu of Webster Thomas leads the boys milers with a 4:35.07 in the 1600 to rank 12th in the state.

The Greece Arcadia – Greece Olympia sprinters rivalry was in its full glory in the 4x200 Friday night and this time it was Arcadia’s Joe Mendola, Dustin Ngo, Xavier McGee and Byron Hearst who took the win with a blazing 1:33.63 for 7th best in the state.  Olympia’s Alpha Barry, Shane Presley, Tremaine Moore, and CJ Noble were so close behind at 1:33.80.

Greece Boys and Rush Girls dominate sprints, Hilton girls the vault, Gates the hurdles, and Johnson the throws.

Boys from Greece schools took top 3 in the 55 and top 4 in the 300. Byron Hearst of Greece Arcadia won the 300 (35.41) and took 2nd in the 55 (6.72).  Carnell Noble of Greece Olympia took 1st in the 55 (6.55) and 4th in the 300 (36.36). Calvary Rogers of Greece Odyssey, Tremaine Moore of Greece Olympia, and Joe Mendola of Greece Arcadia filled in the rest of the top sprinter spots.

Rush-Henrietta is just one school, but they had Lanae-Tava Thomas and Tori Thompson with the fastest 55’s (7.30 and 7.36), Sammy Watson won the 300 (40.62) and the 1000 (3:06.26) with sister Ceara having the third best time in the 300, and 1000.

Zoe Camillaci lead the Hilton girls to the top 4 performances in Section V, (if you vaulted higher than 9’, you go to Hilton), Camillaci jumped 11’ followed by Earnie Burapan at 10’, and Taylor Haude and Sarah Pirnie at 9’6”.  Ethan Maguire of Penfield won the boys with 13’7”.

Anthony Clark of Gates-Chili broke 8 in the 55m Hurdles with a 7.99, and Meaghan Schwartz of Gates lead the girls with 8.85.

Christian Johnson of Victor showed us how to do the weight throw by flinging it 52’ almost 8’ farther than the next best  (Section V Record: David Gross of Brockport 56-05.25 at the 2008 Dartmouth Relays).  Johnson also had the best Shot Put for the 2nd week.  For the girls the first leader in the weight throw is Rachel Richenberg of Canandaigua at 31-03  (Section V Record: Claire Dishong of Brockport 40-04 at the 2009 Lancaster Throw Off).

The Central Boys 1000 was fast and tight with Donny Glavin of McQuaid winning at 2:39.77 over Paul Henry and Mehamed Abdurahim of Rush Henrietta (2:39.85 and 2:39.99)

Autumn Albrecht of Brockport got the first sub-5 1500 of the season with a 4:59.80.

LeRoy has a successor to last year’s triple jumping sensation and 2014 graduate Ruben Owens , with Ryan McQuillen who is leading the boys with a 44-01, closely followed by Justin Butler of UPrep Rochester at 44-0.  Darcy DeAngelis of Spencerport leads the girls at 37-02.

Joshua Allen of SOTA set a new SVSB in the Long Jump at 21’7”.

Rebecca Wittlin of Pittsford Mendon lowered the SVSB in the 1500m Racewalk to 7:33.32.

UPrep Rochester boys brought the speed with a 4x200m time of 1:39.11 

2015 Indoor Track Week 1 (Dec.5-6)

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

Noble and Thomas come close to records in 60m, Lantrip jumps 5-4, Johnson throws over 50

New events, new facilities! There are three new events this season.  60m dash and 60m hurdles (in place of 55m) and the weight throw. Plus a great new facility at Houghton College.

Records had been established for all these events in the past by athletes competing at various invitationals and nationals.

CJ Noble of Greece Olympia and FRESHMEN Lanae-Tava Thomas of Rush-Henrietta both blasted open the season with times of 6.97 and 7.75.  Noble’s time was close to the Section V record of 6.93 set by Maurice Jackson of Marshall in 1996, and Thomas’s time was close to the Section V record of 7.71 set by Zila Higgs (who also holds the 55 record) of East in 1991.

Aubrianna Lantrip of Midlakes blew the field away with a 5-4 high jump which will rank very high in the state once everyone has started competing.

Christian Johnson of Victor heaved open the season with a 50+ shot put, 50-09.50 for what looks to be a strong year for the boys throws.

Rush-Henrietta’s Watson sisters opened up strong with big sister Ceara winning the 600 and little sister (and new xc star) Sammy winning the 1000 and taking 2nd in the high jump.

Megan Curtin of Wayland-Cohocton also started strong running the 3000 in 10:55.32 for the best time of the weekend by almost a 30 second margin and taking 2nd to Ceara in the 600.

Olivia Harbol of PalMac at 7:38.07 and  Afton Minavio of Rush-Henrietta at 7:39.79 took the early spot on the leaderboard in the 1500m Racewalk.

A couple big long jumps with Alex Siracusa of Churchville-Chili jumping 21-5 and Justin Sanders-Schifano of Sodus at 17-6.

Penfield did well in the relays with the best times of the weekend for boys and girls 4x800 and their toughest battle in the girls 4x200 where SOTA lead all the way until Penfield's anchor Abby Frank caught them at the finish line.
