Shea Weilbaker of Saratoga Springs (9:01.57) and Tyler Berg of Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake (9:02.66) both beat the Section II record while placing first and second, respectively, among Division 1 runners in the 3,200 championship race at the state track and field championships Friday at Middletown High School.

The senior distance stars beat the Section II record of 9:04.75 that Otis Ubriaco of Burnt Hills ran in 2010.

Weilbaker has now won two state outdoor titles, two state indoor titles and a New York cross country state championship.

Weilbaker held the lead at the 2,800 mark before race winner Matthew Payamps of St. Anthony’s surged for a 8:59.04 finish. Weilbaker and Berg placed second and third, respectively, in the federation results.

Colonie won the boys' Division 1 400-meter relay and set a Section II record in the process.

Josiah Kemp, Shai Young, Cristian Hubbard and Michael Hermance joined for a first-place 41.52. Colonie had held the Section II record of 42.14 since the 2006 season.

Schenectady also beat that mark with a fourth-place 41.96 produced by Corey Anderson, Jeremiah Davis, Malakai Myles and Trebor Davis.

Pole vaulters Shane Racey of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk (16-0) and Donald Jones of Albany Academy (15-6) took the first two spots in the federation and Division 2 standings. Racey cleared 16-0 on his third attempt, and missed three times at 16-5 which would have tied the Section II record.

Josh Jeffes of Scotia-Glenville placed third in the Division 2 400 with a 48.97.

GIRLS

The Saratoga tendem of Kelsey Chmiel (9:36.94) and Ella Kurto (9:40.77) placed second and third, respectively, in the Division 1 and federation results from the 3,000 championship race behind North Rockland star Katelyn Touhy (9:21.90).

Quinn Collins of Greenwich was first among Division 2 runners in the 800 championship race (2:14.84), and Amelia Canetto of Taconic Hills was third in the Division 2 400 (57.69).
