The Sidney boys dominated the field events, and the Delhi girls ran away from the pack to win their respective Midstate Athletic Conference track and field championships on Wednesday at Sidney.

Delhi got individual wins from four different competitors, totaling 153 points to beat second-place Bainbridge-Guilford (75) by 78.

Cella Schnabel tallied the first of those wins in the steeplechase, crossing in 8:21.79, just ahead of teammate Camille Mueller (8:42.72) in second.

Aolani McCarthy captured Delhi's fourth individual win as the only competitor in the pole vault.

Erica Selfridge and Ethne Degan both won a pair of events to lift B-G into second place.

Degan, a seventh-grader, won the 1,500 in 5:01.75, more than 25 seconds ahead of Delhi duo Autumn Dorr (5:26.82) and Lonnie Weiss (5:43.66) as the next two to cross. Degan also won the 3,000 with a time of 10:40.62.

Foster also won the 200 in 26.74, again topping Selfridge in second (27.98) and McCarthy in third (28.76).

Anabel Rommer won a third event for Unatego, taking the 400 hurdles in 1:10.83, more than four seconds ahead of Delhi's Lauren Packard in second (1:14.53).

Lindsey Frederick won the shot put with a distance of 35-3. UV's Molly Avolio took second at 32-5.5 and Wright was third at 31-1.

On the boys side, Sidney won four of six field events to total 110 points and edge second-place Delhi with 92.

Kevin McEwan won the shot put and the discus to pace the Warriors. His distance of 40-6.25 led a Sidney sweep in the shot put as Chris Prentice took second (40-4) and Anthony Giordonello took third (37-4.25).

McEwan's effort of 112-7 won the discus ahead of Harpursville-Afton's Hunter Sakowsky (104-9) in second and B-G's Ethan Gregory in third (103-9).

Jonathan McNamara took the high jump at 5-6, while teammate Schuylar Rowe was third at 5-2.03. Delhi's Gavin Caffery was second (5-4).

Liam Matthews rounded out Sidney's field wins, earning one of his two individual victories in the pole vault where his height of 11-0 won by two feet.

Matthews also won the 110 hurdles in 15.67, just ahead of Walton's Morgan Condon in second and B-G's Gavin Farrell in third.

Isaac Vesterfelt won two events for third-place Walton. In the 1,600, his time of 4:38.99 edged UV's Josh Nogaret (4:40.91) and Delhi's Jon Hadley (4:43.97). In the 800, Vesterfelt again bested Nogaret (2:06.22) and Hadley (2:08.02) with a winning time of 2:05.79.

In the 400 hurdles, Walton's Morgan Condon won by nearly four seconds with a time of 1:00.00. Matthews took second in 1:03.98 and Delhi's Jacob Pitcher was third in 1:06.00.

Lucas Walley, Jose Mirabal, Condon and Zachary Coviello also won the 400 relay for Walton in 46.34.

Jacob Haqq won three events and Aidan Cutting won two for fourth-place Unatego. Haqq won the long jump in 22-3.5, just ahead of B-G's Nick Petrutoni (21-2.5) and Sidney's Matthews (20-10).

Haqq also won the triple jump, as his distance of 44-0 topped Hadley in second place.

Haqq's time of 23.58 also bested Petrutoni (second, 23.84) in the 200, but Petrutoni won the 100 in 11.63. Haqq took second in 11.71 and H-A's Seth Foster was third in 11.92.

Cutting won the 3,200 in 10:17.86, and took the steeplechase in 10:30.49.

UV's Ben Avolio won the 400 in 52.10, ahead of H-A's Dawson Williams and Walton's Mirabal.

HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL

Roxbury 11, Davenport 3

Roxbury's Bryanna Meehan struck out 12 batters in Thursday's Delaware League semifinal win against Davenport.

Meehan, a freshman, pitched all seven innings, walking six and allowing two hits and one earned run in the win.

"She was throwing a lot of first strikes, it was very nice," Roxbury coach Jane Ware said. "The first time we played them we gave up too many free bases and lost, 16-14. This time we were able to keep them off the bases."

Erin Garza, Gabby Garofolo, Brianna Cross and Leah LaLosh each had two hits for the Rockets.

Cross' two hits came courtesy of a double and a home run on her way to a team-best four RBI.

Garofolo and Garza each finished with two runs batted in.

Roxbury (9-2, 7-1) advances to Friday's championship game against Gilboa at Neahwa Park at 4:30 p.m. The Rockets split the season series with the Wildcats, beating them, 5-1, in league play and dropping a 10-9 extra-inning decision in the Gilboa Tournament.

Deposit 9, Harpursville 0

Makenzie Stiles got her 100th varsity win on Thursday, leading Deposit past Harpursville in the Midstate Athletic Conference title game.

Stiles, the state record holder for varsity perfect games with 15, pitched all seven innings, striking out 16 and walking zero.

Deposit Catcher Bryn Martin finished 4-for-4 at the plate with a double, a home run, three RBI and four runs scored. Riley Martin and Mikala Anderson also doubled in the win.

Bryn Martin's two-run homer put Deposit ahead in the first, 2-0, and it never looked back.

The win gives Deposit its fourth straight league title.

Deposit (17-0) awaits sectional seeding.

Unatego 11, Oxford 1

Unatego catcher Hali Lucia recorded three hits in her team's win over Oxford.

Lucia finished 3-for-4 at the plate, including her team's only extra-base hit, a triple. She also had a RBI.

Paige McCoy got the start in the circle for the Spartans, striking out eight and walking two while surrendering two unearned runs in seven innings.

Cooperstown 20, Sauquoit 0

Abigail Miller went 3-for-4 with a double to lift Cooperstown over Sauquoit on Thursday.

Miller and Erway each finished with a double, and Hailey Seamon hit the game's only home run.

Cooeprstown coach Dave Bliss said Lauren Vibbard, who went 1-for-3 at the plate with 2 RBI, made a few key defensive plays for her team.

"The whole team played well defensively," he said. "The last few games the team has really been coming together on offense and defense."

Rebecca Marmorato got the start in the circle, throwing four innings and allowing just one hit.

Cooperstown (7-6, 6-2) travels to Frankfort-Schuyler on Friday at 4:30 p.m.

Afton 11, Sidney 5

Afton had eight extra-base hits as the eight-seeded Crimson Knights defeated No. 5 Sidney in the MAC Mini Tournament.
