SARANAC LAKE - With nearly half their team not competing, the combined team for Elizabethtown/Keene/Moriah/Westport had a tough time putting up a fight against either the boys or girls teams from Saranac Lake in CVAC track and field action May 6.
EKMW put up no competition in several events, including long jump, triple jump, 400 hurdles and 110 hurdles. Still, eighth grader Kyle VanBuren captured the 3,200 for the boys and Rebecca Pellerin took first in the 1,500 for the girls.
The Red Storm got key performances from Forrest Morgan and Dylan Dawson with wins in three events. Alex Beaudoin, Josh Quinn, Ben Monty, Craig Leahy and Sean Ryan each won two events as the boys cruised to victory despite being without senior sprinter Jake Vuolo.
Vanessa Salamy chipped in for wins at three different distances for the Saranac Lake girls while Kendra Leonidas, Annie Frenette, Maggie Darrah, Julie Bowler, Alexis Smith, and Rhonwen Jones each won two events.
