FALCONER — The Southwest Boys have had a history of success as a team, as evidenced by their fifth consecutive Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association Division 1 title earlier this week.

It is no coincidence that Trojans are also very good individually.

Seniors Trenton Shutters and Dontae Hoose picked up victories in the 800 meters and discus respectively on day one of the CCAA Championships at Bill Race Field on the campus of Falconer Central School.

Shutters posted a winning time of 1:57.27 to hold off Randolph’s Roan Kelly (1:57.52), while Hoose threw the drive 125ft, 2in to win by a comfortable margin over Kevin Edwards-Hardy of ‘Allegany-Limestone (111- 0).

Those efforts were just two of a handful of strong performances from the region’s best last night.

Other winners among the boys were Kelly in the 3,200 metres, Devin Austin of Falconer/Cassadaga Valley in the long jump and Sam Eimiller of Maple Grove in the high jump.

Kelly posted a school record time of 9:38.92 to smash Allegany-Limestone’s Jacob Brink (9:39.71) in the 3,200 metres; Austin jumped 21-4.5 in the long jump, just ahead of Southwestern’s Michael Butterfield (21-3.75); and Eimiller’s 5-10 high jump eclipsed Clymer/Sherman/Panama’s Austin and Gerald Carris with fewer misses.

In the five women’s events, five different schools were represented.

Abby Brunenavs of Maple Grove won the 800 meters; Angelina Napoleon of Allegany-Limestone won the 3,000 metres; Falconer/Cassdaga Valley’s Ella Eckstrom placed first in the triple jump; Franklinville’s Tarryn Herman captured the shot; and Randolph’s Corinne Inkley won the pole vault.

Brunenavs’ time of 2:25.44 in the 800 meters was more than nine seconds better than Randolph’s second Sydney Smith (2:34.84); Napoleon set a strong pace in the 3,000 meters with a time of 9:45.46, as Southwestern’s Emma Lewis (10:39.68) was second; Eckstrom’s triple jump jump (32-11) was 5 inches better than Frewsburg’s Gracie Conlan (32-6); Herman’s best shot put attempt (32-6) edged Falconer/Cassadaga Valley’s Autumn Lynn (30-10); and Inkley’s best pole vault effort was 9-0 to fend off teammates Eve Adams (8-9) and Willow Rader (8-6).
