Tioga County Sports Report
ENDICOTT — Owego sprint standout Stella Palladino captured the gold not once, but twice at the Section IV Division II Track & Field Championships Thursday.

The sophomore speedster came into the meet highly touted in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

She recorded a season-best time of 12.75 seconds to win the Division II title in the 100, but also defeated Division I favorite Amiah Brissett of Binghamton to claim the overall title.

Palladino beat Brissett again in the 200, along with Oneonta star Claire Seguin and Corning standout Cella McLaughlin, posting a season-best time of 25.94 seconds.

River Hawk teammate Jaelyn Chrysler, also a sophomore, was the Division II runner-up in the 1500 with a time of 5:03.14, trailing Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton ace Ethne Degan. Chrysler was fourth overall, following Division I and overall winner Sarah Lawson of Corning and Tsadia Bercuvitz from Ithaca. She was seeded third in D-2 and fifth overall.

Also competing in the 1500 was Newark Valley senior Harley Switzer, who placed fifth in Division II and ninth overall with a time of 5:11.14. She was seeded sixth in D-2, 10th overall and beat her seed time by almost three seconds.

Spencer-Van Etten junior Kirsten Garrison claimed the No. 4 spot in D-2 in the 2,000 steeplechase with a time of 8:36.02. She was 10th overall. Garrison was seeded sixth in the division and 12th overall.

Lindsey Morse, Candor’s lone competitor on Day 2 of the meet, took fourth in Division II in the long jump with a distance of 15 feet, 9 ¼ inches. She placed fifth overall. Morse came into the meet seeded eighth in D-2 and 11th overall.

Newark Valley’s Olivia Webb wasn’t seeded high in the high jump. But cleared 4-8 to finish in a sixth-place tie in Division II and tied for seventh overall.

S-VE’s Madelyn Ellison and Owego’s Lilly LaFever were seventh and eighth, respectively, in the Division II steeplechase. Ellison clocked in at 8:46.14 and LaFever had an 8:48.16.

LaFever teamed up with Chrysler, Palladino and Sidney Senko to take 10th in the D-2 4x400 relay (4:35.05).
