track1A section IV record, a facility record, and four school records were set and one school record was tied over the weekend. The Lansing track and field teams traveled to Moravia for the Blue Devil Relays, an invitational with a nearly twenty year history, and posted record-setting performances throughout the day.

Starting off the run on records was the team of senior Emily Gallagher and freshman Gwen Gisler. At that point, Gallagher held both the invididual section IV and school pole vault record (12'3") as well as the school long jump record (17'4"). She and Gisler added their names to school record history in the long jump relay, with combined jumps of 30'3".

Gallagher then joined forces with teammate Miya Kuramoto in the pole vault relay. Kuramoto, a junior coming off a 7th place finish at the Penn Relays, vaulted 12'9", setting a new section IV and school pole vault record. This also is a facility record for the Moravia venue. Gallagher and Kuramoto's combined vaults of 24'3" is another Lansing school record -- edging out the exhibition vault team of junior Meghan Matheny and Gisler who bested the old school record as well.

Freshman Cat Zaloj and sophomore Destiny Little tied the school record of 9'6" for the high jump relay, adding to the event wins for the Ladycats and posting their names on the Bobcats' record board.

Also earning blue ribbons for their performances:
  • Shuttle Hurdle Relay (Gisler, Zaloj, Little, Emma Dhimitri)
  • Distance Medley Relay (Mikaela Garcia, Dhimitri, Leigh Miller, Catie Eisenhut)
  • 1600M Relay (Zaloj, Eisenhut, Garcia, Dhimitri)
  • Triple Jump (Dhimitri and Garcia)

The 400M relay team (Matheny, Gallagher, Gisler, Kuramoto) was narrowly edged out by Newark Valley, and the shot put team of seniors Ashley Smith and Clara Montague secured a third place finish behind Weedsport and Newark Valley. The Spencer Van Etten team had a strong contingent of sprinters and, by the end of the day, earned a score of 75 to Lansing's 74, with field events earning half as many points as running events in this relay meet.

On the boys side, the Blue Raiders of Trumansburg took the team win with a score of 80 points followed by the Lansing Bobcats with 48 points. Trumansburg was led by wins in the shuttle hurdles, 400M relay, 3200M relay, 1600M relay, long jump, and triple jump. Lansing senior Braydon Jackson and junior Alex Powers joined forces to win both the shot put and discus relays. Also earning points for the Bobcats was the runner-up 1600M relay (John Koch, Xavier Gell, Alex Rose, Devin McCartney) and third-place 3200M relay (Liam Hulsebosch, Jack Thomas, Torsten Gartenberg, Sean Ross).

The teams next travel to Odessa Montour for the Legends of the Night Invitational (on Friday, May 5). They will host their final home meet on Monday, May 8 at 4:30, celebrating the ten seniors on their teams before the meet begins.
