Homer Central’s Andrew Gregg heads for a first place showing in the high hurdles Wednesday, one of his three victories in the OHSL Freedom meet against Jamesville-DeWitt and Mexico.
The showdown for the OHSL Freedom Division dual meet girls’ track and field title was not much of a showdown.
Jamesville-DeWitt dominated this gathering of unbeaten teams by rolling by host Homer Central 105-36 and Mexico 127-14 on a chilly, damp Wednesday afternoon at the George Butts Field facilities. Homer earned a split by beating Mexico girls 102-38.
The Red Rams finish the dual-meet season at 7-0. Homer finishes at 6-1 while Mexico is 5-2.
On the boys’ side, the Trojans finish at 4-3 after losing to J-D 106-35 and Mexico 81-60. J-D topped Mexico 92-49.
Jamesville-DeWitt girls won the lion’s share of the event, but the Trojans did come away with four victories.
Bori Tozser grabbed two wins. Tozser took first place in the 1,500-meter run with a time of 5:02.6 and she later claimed the 800m run after clocking 2:30.2. Tozser capped her day by anchoring the second-place 1,600m relay team that posted a time of 4:32.5. Tori Lewis, Laura Dart and Suzette Strauf ran the first three legs of the relay. Tozser also placed third in the 400m dash with a time of 1:04.9.
Jekeytha Adkins grabbed first-place honors in the 100m hurdles as she clocked 17.2 seconds. The freshman placed second in the long jump (14-feet-5 inches) and third in the triple jump (29-7).
Lewis was the fourth Trojan winner for the afternoon. She posted a time of 1:15.9 to win the 400m hurdles. Lewis joined Hannah McEvoy, Jaclyn Yonta and Rayne Perry on the runner-up 400m relay team (53.8).
Sam Randall, Strauf, Kelly McKenna and Abbey Gray finished second in the 3,200m relay after posting a time of 11:32.3.
Homer’s Andrew Gregg was a three-time winner in the double-dual meet against J-D and Mexico boys. The senior posted his wins in the 1110m hurdles (16.4), 400m hurdles (58.5) and long jump (18-10). Gregg grabbed third-place in the 200m dash with a personal best of 23.4 seconds.
The Trojans 3,200m relay team of Tim Walsh, James McKenna, Cameron Ashley and Jacob Weber took second after clocking 9:18.8.
Frank Davis was the runner-up in the pole vault at 11-feet even, which was a personal best. David Harris claimed second place in the 110m hurdles (17.7) and he was third in the triple jump (35-4).
Homer is back in action Tuesday at Chittenango for the OHSL Freedom Division Championships at 5 p.m.
