Swabik, Evans, Brown Shine; Sena Sets CLCS Mark
OLEAN — Clymer/Sherman/Panama freshman John Swabik won three of five events outright and tied for first in another to claim the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association boys pentathlon title with 2,792 points Saturday afternoon.
Swabik won the high jump at 5 feet, 5.75 inches; the long jump at 18 feet, 6.5 inches; and the 1,500 meters in 4:25.60. He also tied Allegany-Limestone senior Brendon Stover for first in the 110-meter hurdles, crossing the line in 17.8 seconds while taking fourth in the shot put with a heave of 31 feet, 8.75 inches.
Olean’s Marina Miketish won the girls pentathlon with 2,441 points after winning the 800 meters (2:35.8), shot put (25-10.25) and high jump (4-11.75); and taking second in the 100-meter hurdles (18.4) and long jump (13-10.25).
Randolph senior Matthew Evans beat the field by more than 29 seconds to claim the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 10:01.1, while Fredonia’s Emily Brown beat Cattaraugus-Little Valley senior Abby Gostomski by just six-tenths of a second to win the girls 2,000-meter steeplechase in 7:18.1.
In other local results, Anna Sena, a six-year athlete at Chautauqua Lake, broke an 18-year record in the steeplechase, posting a time of 8:31.09, which eclipsed the previous mark held by Julie Emerson. Sena’s performance came on the heels of her setting another school record in the 3,000 meters last week at the Jamestown Track Classic. Her time in that event, 12:01.44, was four seconds faster than the previous record set by Logan Howard-Betts in 2004.
