TRACK & FIELD: Warren teams still unbeaten

CORRY – In a battle of unbeatens, the Warren boys track team defeated Corry, 96-54, on Tuesday in a Region 3 track meet at Corry Area High School. Warren swept the meet with the girls staying unbeaten as well.

“We got points in places we thought we would get a couple and got a couple more,” said Warren boys coach Steve Norris.

“We did not expect to sweep both hurdles and we did,” said Norris. “Jason Peterson stepping up and taking third in both. Ben Ruland in the 800 ran a personal best.”

The Warren coaches were concerned with Corry’s standout distances runners, but the Dragons won the 1,600 relay and 3,200 relay.

Warren swept the long jump with Mark Davis winning at 20-6 1/2 feet and the triple jump with Davis at 40-2. Davis added a third first-place finish in the high jump at 6-2. The Dragons swept the 110 hurdles with Justin Wright winning at 16.50 seconds, and the 300 hurdles with Wright’s 42.84.

Other firsts for Warren included: Luke Wortman in the 400, Caleb Hultman in the 800, Chris McNeal in the discus, and Austin Jerman in the javelin.

The Warren girls didn’t have their best performance on Tuesday, but it was still enough to record an 87-63 victory over the Lady Beavers.

Warren coach Mark Sweet said the fact that his team was able to pull out a victory despite not performing at its highest level is one of the most positive things he’s seen this year.

“Sometimes character says more than a final score,” said Sweet. “We showed great character by finding a way to win. We had some gutty performances today. The girls knew the situation and we found a way to get the win.”

Ellis Beardsley delivered another strong day with victories in a pair of individual events and a pair of relay events. Beardsley won the 800 in 2:30 and the 1600 in 5:42 before joining Valerie Latimer, Sydney Paris and Paige Rimer in the 4X400 relay and Rimer, Paris and Anna Falvo in the 4X800 relay.

Brooke Armanini swept the long jump and triple jump, leading a personal best in the latter. She also was a member of the winning 4X100 relay team with Casey Kulka, Amy Castagnino and Sabrina Anderson.

Anderson added a win in the high jump by clearing five feet, three inches, Kulka won the 200 in 27.43 seconds and Latimer won the 400 in 1:04.

Warren will send a small contingent of athletes to the prestigious Baldwin Invitational on Friday.

Iroquois 77.5, Youngsville boys 71.5

Iroquois 87, Youngsville girls 59

LAWRENCE PARK – Competing one day after a grueling home meet with Eisenhower, the Youngsville track & field teams suffered a sweep at the hands of homestanding Iroquois, Tuesday at Iroquois High School.

The Youngsville boys stayed close during a 77.5-71.5 loss while the Lady Eagles fell by an 87-59 count.

“Overall I was very pleased,” said Youngsville boys track & field coach Jeff Manelick. “We conceded eight points in the pole vault and lost by six points so we look at it like we probably should’ve won. Rocco Gatta had a season-best in both the 100 and 200 tonight and Nathan Wilcox improved his personal best in the javelin. Most of our points came in the field tonight. We were very strong there.”

Mike Hamrick was a three-time winner for the Eagles, performing at his best in both the long jump (19′ 1/2) and the triple jump (39’4 1/2). Hamrick was also a member of the winning 4X100 relay team with Rocco Gatta, Andrew Tyers and Tom Chapman. The team’s winning time was 46.81 seconds.

Other victories on the track were provided by Gatta in the 100 (11.24) and Chapman in the 110 hurdles (17.21). Mitch Wilcox claimed a win in the high jump by clearing five feet four inches, Austin Mechling won the discus with a throw of 123 feet and Nathan Wilcox won the javelin with a toss of 163 feet, five inches.

The Lady Eagles came close, but couldn’t back up the season’s first win (Monday against Eisenhower) against Iroquois. Still, Eagles coach John Victor was impressed with several strong performances from his team.

“The girls were obviously showing some tired legs after yesterday, but still gutted it out today,” said Eagles girls coach John Victor. “Piper Olsen dropped more time off her 3200 time, Mallory Eastman dropped in the 51-second bracket in the 300 hurdles and Katelyn Hall is throwing the javelin extremely well. There were a ton of positives today.”

Abbie Swartzbaugh, Hall and Olsen were the team’s two-time winners against the Braves. In addition to her win in the two-mile, Olsen was a member of the winning 4X800 relay team with Tiffany Haney, Hannah Morris and Marissa Byler.

Swartzbaugh’s victories came in the 100 hurdles (17.08 seconds) and the high jump (4’4), Hall won the discus (75’6) and javelin (98’3), Kellie Lindstrom won the 400 (1:07.69) and Eastman won the 300 hurdles in 51.02 seconds.

Youngsville continues a busy week Thursday when it travels to Corry.

Eisenhower boys 100, Union City 49

Union City 95, Eisenhower girls 55

UNION CITY – The Eisenhower boys track & field team made it five straight victories on the 2013 season after Tuesday’s 100-49 win over Union City on Tuesday. The Ike girls were also in action, dropping a 95-55 decision.

Ike boys coach Dave Bauer was pleased with the way his team continues to perform as well as with how they are growing together as a unit.

“It was an outstanding day for us,” said Bauer. “This was the best weather we’ve had for a meet. It really helps us as a team. We’re still coming along after a slow start practice wise. The team is coming together really well and we’re starting to see some progress.”

The Ike boys had victories and strong performances up and down the roster on Tuesday.

Andrew Onoratti and Jake VanHouten were the team’s three-time winners On Tuesday. Onoratti won both the high jump and long jump.

Onoratti also joined the winning 4X400 relay team with Noah VanHouten, Josh Eernisse and Andy Decker. VanHouten’s victories came in the 300 hurdles, the 200 and the triple jump. VanHouten appeared to have broken the school record in the 300 hurdles, but the time was disallowed after meet officials noticed the event was run with only seven hurdles instead of the necessary eight.

Anthony Amroski, Ben perkins and Nathan O’Brien each won twice against the Bears. Amroski won the 1600 and 3200, Perkins was a winner in the 100 and pole vault and O’Brien won the shot put individually and the 4X100 relay with Matthew Jewell, Jason Adams and Greg Mizak. Rounding out Ike’s winners was Richard Knisley in the javelin.

The Ike girls also had a strong showing Tuesday and coach Mike Logue is pleased with the progress his team is making.

“The girls talked of some tired legs and I can’t really blame them for that,” said Logue. “Still, Taylor Talasky qualified for districts in the 200 and Apprille Seamens did very well in the pole vault with a personal best of seven feet, six inches.”

Julia Bauer, Apprille Seamens and Bizz Baran all won twice for Ike on Tuesday. Seamens won the 300 hurdles and teamed with Bauer, Baran and Taylor Talaksy to win the 4X400 relay race. Bauer added a win in the 800, Baran a win in the long jump, Jackie Talasky was victorious in the shot put and Courtney Jewell won the triple jump.

The Knights are back in action Friday, competing at the Coudersport Invitational.
