Ti boys, AuSable girls win in CVAC track and field

LAKE PLACID — Jay Hebert and Samuel DuShane both earned three victories to lead Ticonderoga past AuSable Valley 87-36 in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference boys’ track and field Tuesday. The meet, which was held in difficult weather conditions, was the season-opener for both schools.

Hebert claimed the 110-meter hurdles in 14.7 seconds and the 200 dash in 23.9. He also helped win the 400 relay. DuShane took first in the 1,600 (5:15) and the 800 (2:20.4), and he was on the winning 3,200 relay squad.

Skyler Gilbert registered two wins for the Sentinels; he placed first in the 400 hurdles and helped win the 400 relay.

John Goodnough paced AuSable Valley by claiming the high jump (5 feet, 2 inches) and the long jump (15-2). Lucas Perez (400) and Connor Kennedy (triple jump) also recorded victories for the Patriots.

Rachel Knapp and Rachel Ford powered the AuSable Valley girls to a 69-60 defeat of the Sentinels. They were both on the 1,600 relay team, along with Ashlee Estes and Brinn Peck. Knapp won the 100 (12.8) and the 400 (1:09.7), while Ford placed first in the triple jump (26-2) and helped win the 3,200 relay. Estes also finished first in the high jump.

AuSable Valley coach Sean Ganter said the wind, rain and cold “definitely had an effect on performances.”

Ticonderoga’s Lillith Ida was first in the 100 hurdles and was on the winning 400 relay team. Stacey Sierra (1,500, 800) and Rachel White (200, long jump) were also two-time winners.
