OHS track teams sweep CV in STAC meet


Oneonta High’s track teams swept visiting Chenango Valley in a Southern Tier Athletic Conference meet Tuesday.

Mat Robinson led the boys team to an 86-55 win with victories in the 400-meter hurdles and the high jump. Robinson sped to a personal-best 59.9-second clocking in the hurdles.

“For this time of the season, anything under 60 is good,” OHS boys coach Brady Cotter said. “There are a couple of kids in the section under 60 but not many of them.”

Robinson cleared 5-foot-6 to win the high jump.

Logan Mancuso contributed victories in the 1,600 (5:00.0) and the 3,200 (10:44.8). Ben Gollin, running the open 800 for the first time, crossed in a winning time of 2:01.7.

Aaron Murphy (triple jump, 40-11), Mitchel Couch (discus, 124-9) and Dan Decker (pole vault, 10-2) also had wins for the Yellowjackets.

Oneonta’s girls won every event en route to a 125-12 win over the Warriors.

Jen Jelic finished with three victories, including a 1:07.5 clocking in the 400 hurdles. Through OHS’ first two meets this season, Jelic has run faster than her best of last season, which was 1:08 and change.

Jelic also ran a 16.9 in the 100 hurdles and triple jumped 30-2.

Additionally, she joined Abby Picinich, Mary Buzzanca and Alexandra Sakoulas on the 400 relay team that finished in 52.6. OHS girls coach Dave Forbes said the quartet stands a good chance of breaking the school record of 51.1 set in 1988.

Natalie Vanderlaan-Meyering tied her personal-best in winning the high jump, clearing 5-0.

Double-winners for the Yellowjackets were Picinich, who won the 100 (13.4) and the 200 (28.2); Taylor Hitchcock, who won the 1,500 (5:21.3) and the 3,000 (11:52.3); and Michelle-Lee St. Marthe, who won the shot put (28-8 ½) and the discus (90-6).

Oneonta will head to Windsor on Saturday for the NY-PA Invitational.
