OHS' Jelic sets record in Windsor

The Daily Star


Oneonta High senior Jennifer Jelic and Sidney’s boys 1,600-meter relay team set meet- and school-records Saturday in leading their respective teams to second-place finishes in the N.Y./Pa. Invitational at Windsor.

In a loaded 400 hurdles field, Jelic took down Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton’s Julia Knapp and Union-Endicott’s Kathy Cadet, and broke a 25-year-old school record in the process.

“An outstanding, aggressive 400 hurdles,” OHS coach Dave Forbes said in describing Jelic’s win. “She took off, she was solid of out the blocks and never misstepped a hurdle.

“Cadet and Knapp didn’t fade,” he continued. “Jen just looked so strong. She never slowed down all the way to the end.”

Jelic crossed in 1 minute, 4.98 seconds. That beat the meet record of 1:05.87 set by Cadet last season and the school record of 1:06.8 set by Jill Hurley in 1988.

“It’s definitely one of the older ones,” Forbes said of the mark Hurley set during the Reagan administration. “Jen has been close to it. She just ran a perfect race (Saturday).”

Knapp, a sophomore who has twice placed in the 400 hurdles at the state meet, finished second in 1:06.36. Cadet crossed 1:06.46.

“It’s such a drastic drop in time that it’s hard to predict the future,” Forbes said when asked what kind of Jelic could run before season’s end.

Jelic, who had never cracked 1:07 in the event, helped the Yellowjackets to 62 points. Elmira won the 26-team tournament with 70.

Oneonta’s 1,600 relay team of Abby Picinich, Mary Buzzanca, Jelic and Missy Emilio finished first in 4:19.45.

Running the third leg, Jelic received the baton in third place. After running a 1:03 split, she handed off to Emilio with the Jackets in first place, and Emilio also ran a 1:03 to give OHS a three-second win over Elmira.

The Yellowjackets also received second-place finishes from Picinich in the 200 (28.31) and Natalie Vanderlaan-Meyering in the high jump (4 feet, 10 inches).

B-G/A finished tied for fifth with U-E in the team standings with 45 points.

Knapp won the long jump, covering 16-1, and finished second in the 100 hurdles. She finished in 15.63, just off Cadet’s winning time of 15.57.

She also helped the Bears’ 400 relay team to victory, joining Christina Bochicchio, Katrina Ross and Miltilda Knapp. They crossed in 52.47 to just beat U-E, which finished in 52.97.

Unatego’s Katrina Clark and Sidney’s Samantha Mullineaux also had second-place finishes. Clark finished a tight 800 race just behind Elmira’s Khiera Ashley, who crossed in 2:26.86. Clark was timed in 2:27.02.

“She wasn’t leading at all, but she ran a really good race,” Unatego coach Mike Hamilton said of Clark.

Mullineaux put the shot 34-11 ½. Binghamton’s Alexis Daniels won at 36-6.

On the boys side, Sidney finished with 60 points _ 18 behind winner Vestal.

The Warriors were led by their 1,600 relay team of Ethan Green, Dean Howard, Hunter Sowersby and Austin McCarroll. That quartet crossed in 3:31.50 to break the meet record of 3:31.70 set by Wyalusing in 2007 and Sidney’s school mark of 3:32.5 set in 1993.

“To run that kind of a time this early in the year, we still have a month-and-a-half before sectionals, it puts us in position to have a really legitimate shot of going to states this year,” first-year Sidney coach Paul Sims said.

McCarroll had the fastest split of 51.7.

Sidney also received a victory from its 400 relay team of Mike Ward, Green, Nate Magnussen and Sowersby. The Warriors finished in 46.24 and their 3,200 relay squad of Howard, Thomas Hoskins, Cole Matthews and McCarroll placed second in 8:49.00.

“If you look at our three relays, that shows a lot of depth,” Sims said.

McCarroll also finished third in the 800 in an impressive early-season time of 2:00.26. Norwich’s Matt Murray won in a meet-record 1:54.87.

Unatego senior David VanAlstine placed first in the 100, finishing in 11.61. He just held off Auburn’s Stephan McGee, who finished in 11.65.

“He had a good start,” Hamilton said of VanAlstine. “He pretty much led the whole way, but it got pretty close.”

The area’s other winning performance belonged to B-G/A’s Pedro Aparacio, who won the shot put with a distance of 48-2 ½. Teammate Chris Puerile finished second at 44-11 ¼ and Sidney’s Austin Dean was third at 44-10.

Oneonta High’s Mitchel Couch placed second in the discus at 138-3. Montrose’s John Lawson won at 139-6 and Sidney’s Dean was third at 129-5.

OHS will compete Friday in the Ithaca Relays. Unatego has a home meet Tuesday, when Sidney will travel to Delhi.
