Baldwinsville indoor track stars compete at state meet

first_imgA group of Baldwinsville’s top indoor track and field athletes would make noise during last Saturday’s New York State Public High School Athletic Association championships at Staten Island’s Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex.Much of the Bees’ presence centered around the duo of Lauren Addario and Karen Ekure, each of whom took part in mulitple events.Addario was nearly in the top 10 of qualifiers for the triple jump, having gone 37 feet 11 ½ inches during the season. Here, Addario’s best leap was 36’6” on her first attempt, followed by a 36’5” and 35’11 3/4”. That put her in 14th place overall as the state title went to North Rockland’s Nadia Saunders, who went 40’4 1/2”.Also, Addario joined Ekure in the 55-meter dash, where Ekure had finished in 7.32 seconds and Addario in 7.41 on their way to the state meet.Ekure’s time of 7.45 seconds would put her in 21st place, while Addario’s 7.56 had her 26th. Ultimately, it took breaking seven seconds to win the state championship, which Schalmont’s Mia D’Ambrosio did by finishing in 6.95 seconds.

Having run 1:25 flat to reach the state meet, Waldron improved to 1:24.88 and finished 21st overall as Springfield Gardens’ Reheem Hayles won in 1:18.48.Also, Steven Miller was in the weight throw, where he looked to top his 54’11 1/2” he had thrown earlier this season.Here, Miller would go 51’8 1/4” and take 25th place, just one spot behind Liverpool’s Jalen Graham (52’2”) as Commack’s Nick Pisciotta won with a heave of 75’6”, more than four feet ahead of the nearest thrower.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img
