IAC: Dryden track boys remain undefeated

The Dryden High boys’ track and field team improved to 4-0 on the season Monday with a pair of Interscholastic Athletic Conference North Division wins, 89-51 over host Lansing and 82.83-57.16 over Trumansburg.
Trumansburg boys also defeated Lansing 76-55 at the tri-meet.
The Dryden girls’ squad fell to Lansing 80-52 and Trumansburg 86-45 and are now 2-2 on the season. Lansing also trimmed Trumansburg, 77-63.
Tor Wildenstein was a quadruple winner to pace the Purple Lions in the boys’ meet, taking the 400-meters in 57.2 and the triple jump at 40 feet-9 inches while also being part of both the victorious 400m and 1,600m relay squads, in 45.4 and 5:54.5, respectively.
Liam Joyce and Nick Muldoon were triple winners. Joyce won the 100m in 10.9 and the 200m in 23.0 while Muldoon took the 110m hurdles in 16.1 and the 400m hurdles in 1:05.0. Both also took part in a relay win, though which won was unreported for both.
Abbey Yatsko won four events for Dryden girls, highlighted by a school-record time of 12.4 in the 100m dash. She also won the 200m in 26.5 and 400m hurdles in 1:06.6 in addition to being part of the winning 1,600m relay squad (4:24.3).
Marli Hammond won the shot put at 26-11 and the Discus at 79-7.
Both Dryden teams visit Marathon Thursday, along with Moravia, staring at 4:30 p.m.
Trumansburg 10, Marathon 0: Dominick Milliron had the only base hit for the Olympians and also walked once as a quartet of hurlers teamed up to throw a one-hitter for the Blue Raiders (1-1).
Jake Shelley went 3-for-4 for Trumansburg while Zachary Ives was 2-for-3, Hunter Sherwood 2-for-4 and Glenn Addicott 2-for-5 with two RBIs and Owen Bair also singled home two runs.
The winners collected a total of 12 hits off three Marathon pitchers and also benefited from eight errors by the Olympians, who opened their season with the loss.
“I thought we looked a little nervous to start the game and we made some mistakes early on that put us behind the 8-ball,” Marathon coach Bryan Hoyt said. “You can’t make those kinds of mistakes against a team like Trumansburg. They’re too good of a team to fall behind and have to try to come back on.
“I thought we started to look more comfortable as the game went on. It was good to get those first-game jitters out of our system. We are a very young team.”
Marathon was to host Moravia today at 4:30 p.m.
Trumansburg 10, Marathon 6: The Blue Raiders scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to go ahead for good and, after the Olympians had pulled to within 6-5 in the top of the sixth, scored four more times in the bottom of that frame to seal the victory.
Megan Contri went 2-for-3 with an RBI for Marathon while Marissa Harris (two RBIs), Cassie Serowk (two runs) and Ashley Bush (run) all went 2-for-4.
“They got some key hits each time we made a comeback. Their pitcher, Katelyn Artibee, kept the ball low and we had trouble getting the ball out of the infield. Freshmen Daisy Allen and Jada Lateer each scored a run and are going to be a big part of this program the next few years. As they adjust to the varsity level, they will only get better and help us win games.”
Marathon was to host Moravia today, the first pitch slated for 4:30 p.m.
