B-G/A, Cobleskill-Richmondville win Don Howard

CV-S boys tie in Tri-Valley relays

Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton junior Julia Knapp won three events and was named the athlete of the meet in the Don Howard Invitational on Friday at Cooperstown.

Knapp placed first in the 100- and 400-meter hurdles, and the long jump in helping B-G/A’s girls to a second-place finish in the 13-team meet.

The Bobcats finished with 89 1/3 points, four behind winner Norwich. The host school finished third with 79.

In one of the faster events of the meet, Knapp won the 400 hurdles in 1 minute, 8.07 seconds. Cooperstown’s Kristin Ratliff and Danielle Perrino finished second and third in respective times of 1:09.89 and 1:10.77.

Knapp crossed in 16.23 in the 100 hurdles and long jumped 16 feet, 5 inches.

Cooperstown’s 1,600 and 3,200 relay teams placed first. The 1,600 team of Lucy Ford, Samantha Fanion, Perrino and Grace LeCates crossed in 4:19.70, just ahead of Oneonta High’s squad that finished in 4:20.07.

LeCates, Kate O’Handley, Perrino and Ratliff were on the 3,200 relay, which finished in 10:51.00.

“My girls competed beautifully,” Cooperstown coach Connie Herzig said. “I was over the moon (with our performance). It much better than I anticipated.”

Ford also won the high jump, clearing 5-0.

Cobleskill-Richmondville cruised to the boys title with 153 points. Whitesboro was second with 79, followed by Oneonta with 75.

The Yellowjackets received victories from Logan Mancuso (3,200, 10:20.56); James Longo (400 hurdles, 59.89) and their 3,200 relay team of Sam Baskin, Longo, Mancuso and Jacob DePauw, which finished in 9:03.04.
