SCHENECTADY - The 59th William F. Eddy Jr. Memorial Track and Field Meet 
served as a gold mine Saturday for Section II athletes.
Eight championships for area boys and seven more for the girls was the 
outcome at Union College's Frank Bailey Field, surpassing the 12 gold medals 
earned in 1998.
The Shenendehowa boys' 3,200-meter relay team and pole vaulter Joel Carusone 
of Guilderland set meet records, while Jennifer Aubin of Saratoga and Janine 
Tessarzik of Guilderland were the only individual double winners, both in the 
Aubin and Dan Tebbano of Shenendehowa, who won the 3,200 and ran a key third 
leg on the Plainsmen's victorious relay, were named the meet's outstanding 
With Ben Derkowski, Chris Jones, Tebbano and Rob Cloutier joining forces, 
Shenendehowa clocked a 7:47.39 to top one of the oldest Eddy records, a 
7:49.2 produced by McQuaid Jesuit of Rochester in 1974. The Plainsmen's time 
was also the second-fastest in Section II history.
"We didn't talk about time," said Cloutier. "We wanted to run strong and get 
a trophy."
Tebbano made up 15 meters in an outstanding 1:52.9 third leg before Cloutier 
anchored the triumph in 1:54.9. Tebbano caught up with one Dewitt Clinton 
runner, and Cloutier passed another early in his second lap and never looked 
Dewitt Clinton placed second in 7:52.80, and Fayetteville-Manlius was third 
in 7:53.67.
"I got the baton about the same time as he did. Their kid went out real hard, 
and with a lap to go he started to slow down," said Cloutier. "With about 300 
left, I passed him."
"We wanted to win the race, but we were hoping it wouldn't be that tough," 
said Shenendehowa coach Matt Jones. "What we were hoping for was to win that, 
and then have Dan and Rob come back, win their races, and go home with some 
first-place trophies."
Cloutier later ran the 800, but the 3,200 relay took its toll, and the 
University of Tennessee-bound senior finished third to Seton Catholic's Jason 
Jabaut and Corinth's Matt Crossman. Tebbano was able to regroup, and the 
Georgetown-bound senior claimed the 3,200 in 9:32.24, with schoolmate Darrell 
Andruski placing second (9:35.15).
Their efforts helped Shenende- howa win the boys' team title for the fifth 
time in eight years with 44 points, six more than Franklin of Rochester.
"We had some misfortune in the field, and we didn't double certain kids 
because with the other big meets coming up, we didn't want to beat them up," 
said Jones. "Winning the team title, that's a pleasant surprise."
That Carusone won the pole vault came as no surprise. The reigning indoor and 
outdoor state champion didn't even attempt a jump until the entire field had 
completed theirs. Rob Gerren of Fonda-Fultonville placed second at 13-6.
Carusone easily cleared 14-6 on his first attempt, and went 15-6 on his third 
try to equal his own Section II record. The senior missed three times at 
16-0, barely brushing the bar with his chest on the way down on his second 
and third jumps.
"What's happened over the year is that I've been able to clear the bar so 
easily, I've gotten a little lazy," said Carusone. "I got lazy up on top of 
the pole. At a height like this, you can't do it."
Carusone set both the meet and Section II records last year by clearing 15-4. 
His goal entering Saturday's competition was to top the state record of 16-3.
"I set the meet record which is nice, but I didn't get what I came for, and 
that's disappointing," said Carusone, before adding. "It's going to happen. 
Hopefully in the sectionals."
State leader Dylan Welsh of Saratoga won the mile for the third year in a row 
(4:17.39), Lee Ansaldo of Bethlehem beat the pack in 100 (11.07), and Colonie 
placed first in the 1,600 relay in 3:20.37, the sixth-fastest time in Section 
II history. Brett Thompson, Jim Tremblay, Mike Gather and Bryan Susser (48.2) 
combined for the win.
Susser, a sophomore, later made a gutty run in the stretch of the 400-meter 
dash, but lost in a tight photo to Nottingham's Dewitt Ellick, 48.35 to 
48.36. Only five Section II athletes have ever run faster.
A couple of unexpected winners were Paul Roche of Niskayuna in the long jump 
and junior Adam Terry of Queensbury in the discus. Roche soared 21-8 on his 
last jump to surpass his personal best of 21-7, and beat Joe Bogovich of 
Saratoga (20-11).
"I knew I'd need a PR day, and that's what I got," said Roche. "On that last 
jump, I put everything into my run and attacked the board."
Terry also won his trophy on his final attempt, firing the discus 155-7 to 
top Westbury's Claudy Etienne (who later prevailed in the shot put), and 
Section II leader Paul Yakubec of Greenwich.
"I'm surprised. Every time I've thrown against him [Yakubec] he's beaten me," 
said Terry, who's in only his second year of competitive throwing. "He looked 
pretty good in warmups. I guess he had an off day."
Like Roche and Terry, Aubin won the long jump on her final attempt, going 
17-5, and later won the triple jump with a personal best 37-9. She also ran 
sixth in the hurdles.
Tessarzik became the second consecutive Section II performer to win both the 
shot put and discus, following Deshaya Williams of Saratoga in 1998. The 
senior, who will join Cloutier at Tennessee in the fall, threw a personal 
best and Section II-leading 40-0 in the shot put and later went 141-3 in the 
discus, beating Tarah Rowse of Greenwich in both.
"I was pretty confident, especially after winning the shot put," said 
Tessarzik. "I beat a lot of those people before."
Shenendehowa had a pair of winners in Becky Cusack, who placed first in the 
100 high hurdles (15.23), and freshman Jamie Stitt, who was triumphant in the 
inaugural pole vault (10-0) competition. Another victor was Lauren Hogan of 
Saratoga, who ran a blistering 800 (2:12.43), the top time in the state this 
year and the sixth best in Section II history.
Jennifer Donovan of Half Hollow Hills West set a meet record in the 1,500 
(4:34.75), edging Colonie's Jen Kramer (4:36.08) in a race where four girls 
bettered 4:40.
With its athletes winning three relays and three individual events, Uniondale 
successfully defended its girls' team title, scoring 96 points to 
Shenendehowa's 54.
