OLEAN — Cameron Barmore is reaching new heights.


The Clymer/Sherman/Panama junior set a program record with a leap of 6 feet, 7 inches to win the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association boys high jump title Saturday afternoon at Olean Middle School.

Barmore, who finished tied for third in Division II at last year’s New York State Public High School Athletic Association meet with a jump of 6 feet, 4 inches, beat second-place Carson Crist of Maple Grove by 8 inches on Saturday.

Southwestern’s Dagon Bryant won the 3,000-meter steeplechase by more than 40 seconds and teammate Chase Stevenson captured the pole vault by 6 inches as the Trojans won their third straight Division 1 title with 187 points.

Second-place finishes by Bryant in the 3,200 meters and the Trojans 3,200-meter relay team, coupled with third-place finishes by Eddie Scroxton in the 800 meters, Ethan Luce in the 3,200 meters, Jaden Kinnear in the 400-meter hurdles and Cooper Pannes in both the shot put and discus were key for Southwestern to hold off Falconer/Cassadaga Valley for the crown.

The Golden Cougars had four individual champions and won two of the three relays to finish with 151 points.

Collin Barmore captured the 1,600 meters (4:27.92) and 3,200 meters (9:46.54), Rayven Sample claimed the 400 meters in 51.27 seconds and Bryce Baglia took the 800 meters in 1:57.73, while Sample, Austin Johns, Baglia and Barmore teamed up to win the 1,600-meter relay in 3:29.33. Baglia later anchored the winning 3,200-meter relay team that included Joey Pilliteri, Wyatt Harrington and Connor Hudson, crossing the finish line in first place with a 8:33.05 clocking.

Noah Steinbroner was a double winner in the 100 meters (11.56) and 200 meters (23.52) to lead Franklinville/Ellicottville/West Valley to the Division 3 crown by one point, 140-139, over Maple Grove.

Crist and Darius Jones led the Red Dragons’ effort with Crist taking second in the high jump and long jump while Jones was the runner-up in the pole vault and third in the 110-meter hurdles. Riley Auer was also third for Maple Grove in the 400 meters as was Caleb Foley in the triple jump.

Allegany-Limestone easily won the Division 2 title with 223 points. Liam Coulter and Michael Wolfgang finished 1-2, respectively, in both the 110-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles while Gators teammate, Patrick Walsh, won the discus and was second in the shot put.

Portville was second in Division 2 with 108 points, led by Alex Wenke’s win in the triple jump with a leap of 40 feet, 5.25 inches.

Clymer/Sherman/Panama’s John Swabik claimed the long jump with a leap of 20 feet, 3.25 inches and Gowanda’s Andrew Musacchio captured the shot put with a heave of 49 feet, 8 inches, while Dunkirk took first place in the 400-meter relay (45.66).

The top athletes will now prepare for next weekend’s Section VI Track & Field State Qualifier, which will be held Friday and Saturday at Williamsville South High School.
