CHERYL CLOUGH Sidney third baseman Cameron Chabot tries to make a throw on the run during Friday’s MAC baseball championship game.

Cherry Valley-Springfield track and field swept the Tri-Valley League championships, winning both the boys and girls titles Wednesday at CV-S.

Rebecca Phillips recorded both of the individual wins for the Patriots as the team totaled 149.5 points, edging second-place Downsville with 125.

Phillips led a one-two finish for CV-S in the 110 hurdles, winning in 17.81. Teammate Alana Latella-Devine was second in 17.96. Phillips also won the long jump with a distance of 14-9.5, while Downsville’s Sam Severing took second at 14-6.

Severing won two other events, however. In the 100, Severing won in 13.3, just ahead of CVS’ Allison Lennebacker and (13.4) and Stamford’s Skylar Shafer (13.9). Severing finished her sweep of the sprints in the 200, crossing in 27.94. Lennebacker was again second in 28.62, and Shafer again took third with a time of 28.69.

Emily Brown also won on the track for Downsville, winning the 400 with a time of 1:05.6. Lennebacker was second once again, clocking a time of 1:06.2. Downsville’s Kailee Young took third in 1:07.6.

Young earned an individual victory of her own in the shot put, winning with a distance of 30-5. Laurens/Milford’s Meghan Saggese took second with a mark of 30-1, while Downville’s Alisha Trautschold was third at 29-3.

Zelda Adams also won for the Eagles, taking the 400 hurdles in 1:12.1. Phillips took second with a time of 1:12.9.

Downsville won two of the three relays to total seven event wins, the most of any team. In the 1,600-meter relay, Young joined Lindsey Parks, Luccia Martucci and Emily Brown for a time of 4:35.6. In the 3,200 relay, Adams, Peyton Darling, Kenzy Hammond and Parks clocked a time of 11:20.0.

Emily Stanley won two middle-distance events to earn half of Laurens/Milford’s event wins. Stanley took the 1,500 with a time of 5:47.0. CV-S filled the next two spots, as Kailey Burns took second (5:50.0) and Jaelyn Jaquay finished third (5:55.6).

In the 3,000, Stanley’s time of 13:11.9 again bested Jacquay in second at 13:16.0.

Mariah Saggese won the high jump for L/M, clearing 4-10, and Sarah Munson won the discus with a throw of 78-9.

Liana Darling of Schenevus/Worcester won the 800 with a time of 2:41.2, just ahead of CV-S’ Morgan Huff (2:41.3).

G-MU/Morris’ Myah Farwell won the triple jump, covering 31-5.25 to defeat Downsville’s Adams in second (30-1.25).

Stamford won the 400 relay as Shafer, Leanna McAuliffe, Melanie Hoyt and Mary Andrews crossed the line in 55.5.

On the boys side, CV-S again emerged as winners despite claiming just two events. The Patriots totaled 95 points to just beat out second place Franklin (93) and third-place G-MU/Morris (88).

Stefan Andreev earned the lone individual victory for the Patriots, taking the 110 hurdles in 19.3. Jacob Lyons took second for L/M, but Ryan Burr and Christian Andreev filled the third and fourth slots, respectively, for CV-S.

The Patriots also won the 3,200 relay as Jeb Magruder, Luke Loveland, Silas Wilson and Josiah Palumbo finished in 9:17.4 to win by more than 11 seconds.

Tyler Gregory won all three of the distance events to pace Franklin, winning the 800 in 2:11.6 and the 1,600 in 4:58.0. Brandon Richards took second in the 1,600 for G-MU/Morris with a time of 5:02.7.

Gregory finished his sweep in the 3,200, clocking a time of 11:06.4 to defeat Samuel Piedmonte and Brennan Finch, both of G-MU/Morris, by more than 21 seconds.

Michael Premura-Milton of South Kortright/Davenport/Andes matched Gregory by sweeping the three sprints.

Premura-Milton clocked a time of 11.3 to win the 100, ahead of G-MU/Morris’ Ethan Koch (11.7) and Stamford’s Sam Krum (11.8).

In the 400, Premura-Milton won by more than two seconds, finishing in 52.3. Koch again took second in 54.7.

Premura-Milton finished his sweep in the 200, winning in 22.9, while Koch was again second with a time of 23.9. Krum was again third in 24.8.

Premura-Milton was also part of the SK/D/A team that won the 400 relay, joining Falcon Melvin, Logan McCracken and Joey Ontl to finish in 48.22.

Jacob Walling had the lone event win for third-place G-MU/Morris, winning the discus with an effort of 118-9. Franklin placed Cole Ruff (113-6) and Chris Kuntz (111-7) in second and third.

G-MU/M also won the 1,600 relay as Dominick Hartwell, Hamid Williams, Richards and Koch finished in 3:48.0.

Josh Wayman won a pair of jumps for fourth-place Schenevus/Worcester. In the high jump, he set a new league and school record by clearing a height of 6-5. He also won the long jump with a leap of 18-10.75, just ahead of Franklin’s Ruff in second at 17-10.

Richfield Springs’ Darren Panko took second in the high jump behind Wayman with a height of 5-10, and won the 400 hurdles with a time of 1:05.5. Stefan Andreev and Christian Andreev took second and third in the event.

Elias Barnes won the triple jump for Laurens/Milford with a distance of 39-1 to go with his third-place finish in the long jump.

Dan Olson won the shot put for Stamford with a distance of 42-0, two inches ahead of Franklin’s Kuntz in second (41-10).


State Qualifiers

Oneonta’s Chris Catan solidified his spot in the upcoming state tennis tournament, while Delhi’s Alex Haight won one of two matches to remain in contention heading into the weekend at Binghamton .

Catan picked up where he left off after the section tournament, which saw him lose just one game on the way to his second consecutive title. Friday, he again dropped just one game to win his first two matches and advance into the final of the state qualifying tournament.

The Yellowjacket sophomore opened with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Ithaca’s Jerry Qian before defeating Maine-Endwell’s Logan Howard, 6-1, 6-0, in his second match.

“Chris played outstanding matches today, dominating the court with ball placement, precision and speed,” Oneonta coach Phyllis Orlowski said in an email. “He had a high number of aces on his serves, and walked off the court each match calm, cool and collected.”

Catan plays the final on Saturday at Binghamton Tennis Center. The top three finishers in the qualifying tournament advance to state competition, in which Catan has already earned a spot.

Haight remains in contention for the state tournament despite dropping his first match on Friday, a 6-3, 6-3 decision to Vestal’s Saavan Kaneria. The sophomore rebounded with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Maine-Endwell’s Dom L’amoreaux.

Haight returns to action on Saturday at 11 a.m., playing Howard with a chance to advance to the consolation final. Victory in that final would secure Haight the third state-eligible position.

Schenevus 8, Richfield Springs 4

Alexis Hults improved to 6-0 as Schenevus scored five fifth-inning runs to defeat Richfield Springs in the Tri-Valley League consolation game.

Trailing, 4-2, in the bottom of the fifth, the top-seeded Dragons started the rally with a hit from Sam Osborne. Erika Spranger tied the game with a two-out single, plating Osborne, before a hit by Alexia Piercy, three walks and a hit batter allowed Osborne to drive in the fifth run of the frame for the hosts. Schenevus sent 11 batters to the plate in the inning.

Spranger, Piercy and Osborne all had two hits and a RBI for the Dragons.

Fourth-seeded Sidney came back from Thursday’s loss to Afton with a seven-run first inning to defeat No. 6 Oxford in the MAC mini tournament.

“We just bounced back,” Sidney coach Mike Brazee said. “Last night it was really the errors and Afton hit the ball really well. Tonight we cleaned up the defense and hit the ball.”

Tianna Savino went 2-for-2 with a double and a RBI, while Kayla McEwan also had a double and a run on a 2-for-4 day.

McEwan also earned the win in the circle, pitching six shutout innings after Oxford got two runs in the top of the first. She totaled seven walks and three strikeouts while allowing three hits.

Sidney (9-9) awaits its section tournament draw.

Cooperstown 6, Frankfort-Schuyler 1

Rebecca Marmarato remained unbeaten in the circle as Cooperstown won a sixth straight game.

“We’re playing really well now. We made some adjustments in the field and moved some people around,” Cooperstown coach Dave Bliss said. “Getting timely hits and playing good defense, everything is coming together.”

Marmarato (5-0) struck out five, allowing three hits and two walks. Frankfort-Schuyler scored two in the bottom of the first, but Marmarato finished with six scoreless innings for the Hawkeyes.

Lauren Vibbard powered the offense, going 2-for-2 and reaching base in all four of her plate appearances with two walks. She stole three bases and scored three runs to go along with strong defensive performance that included one play Bliss called “spectacular.”
