GRAHAMSVILLE April 24, 2001 Twenty-one schools and hundreds of athletes made for a full day of events at the annual Tri-Valley Track and Field Invitational, held Saturday in Grahamsville.
The sun had sunk behind the surrounding hills when the last event the hammer throw finished up.
Notable in the team scores was that the host Lady Bears did not win, a rare occurrence.
Last year T-V beat out Millbrook in the small schools division, but this time around the Lady Blazers turned the tables, 105-68.5.
Pine Bush swept both big schools divisions, while Millbrook outdistanced T-V in the Boys Division II standings.
T-V freshman Heather Iatauro won the frosh/soph 1500 and the 1000 steeplechase to cop the outstanding track athlete award.
Nichole Brundage of Pine Bush won the long, high, and triple jumps to garner outstanding field athlete honors.
The respective boys winners were Sean Bramley of New Paltz (field), who spun the discus 168-3 to beat the meet mark held by Delaware Valley CS grad Tim Benson.
Peter Jasmin of Pine Bush was the top track athlete after one individual and two relay wins.
