State track: Brown wins second straight 400M title

State track: Brown wins second straight 400M title

Junior sprinter Izaiah Brown of Amsterdam captured his second consecutive Division 1 400 meter title

Junior sprinter Izaiah Brown of Amsterdam captured his second consecutive Division 1 400 meter title, and Stillwater sophomore jumper Leah Moran was a double winner in the girls’ Division 2 long jump and triple jump to pace six Section II championship performances at the New York State Track and Field Championships Friday at Cicero-North Syracuse High School.

Brown breezed to a time of 47.57 to win by .34 seconds over Mohamed Kouyate of Taft EC.

Moran leaped 38-10 1⁄4 in the D2 triple jump and also triumphed with a jump of 18-4 3⁄4 to take the D2 long jump.

Also claiming individual crowns were senior Jay Navin of Saratoga Springs, who won the 800 in 1:54.24; Leah Triller of Holy Names, who won the girls’ 800 in 2:13.109; and Columbia junior Nastasja Johnston, who won the D1 long jump in a Section II-record 19-10 1⁄2 .

Johnston’s previous best was 19-0 in an individual meet with Shaker and Mohonasen. Klarissa Ricks of Holy Names had the previous Section II mark at 19-1 3⁄4. She also owns the all-time best of 19-10 3⁄4, but that was posted at the 2011 Penn Relays, and Section II doesn’t recognize those standards as sectional records.

Other noteworthy performances among the boys included Devlin Bahruth of Johnstown (second in the D2 400 dash), Jeremy Spiezio of Greenwich (sixth in the 3,200 run), Max Comer of Schuylerville (second in the D2 400 hurdles), Alec Swider of Scotia-Glenville (fifth in the D2 long jump), Brian Greenberg of Bethlehem (third in the D1 triple jump), Nolan McComb of Taconic Hills (third in the D2 discus); and Jake Coveney of Broadalbin-Perth (first in the 110 hurdles during the pentathlon).

Rounding out the best efforts for the girls were Sarah Knowles of Shenendehowa (fifth in the D1 400), Estela Smith of Saratoga Springs (sixth in the 3,000), Ellery Bianco of Saratoga Springs (second in the D1 400 hurdles), Zoe Doolittle of Glens Falls (second in the D2 shot put and third in the D2 discus), Kara Snyder of Colonie (sixth in the pole vault), Jessica Craven of Shenendehowa (fourth in the D1 discus) and Grayce French of Saratoga Springs (sixth in the D1 discus).
