WEST SENECA — Trenton Shutters has had a pretty good run of it this spring.
That was especially true Friday at the Section VI Track & Field State Qualifier at West Seneca West High School.
Competing in the finals of the boys Division 2 800 meters, the Southwestern senior posted a winning time of 1:55:09 to earn a trip next week to Cicero-North Syracuse High School in a bid for a state crown. Shutters finished ahead of Braden Tent of East Aurora (1:57.86) and Roan Kelly of Randolph (1:59.62).
Shutters wasn’t the only area headliner from the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association.
Angelina Napoleon of Allegany-Limestone continued her dominance, claiming the girls Division 2 800 meters (2:08.02) and the 3,000 meters (10:11.73) to punch her ticket to central New York next weekend; and teammate Jacob Brink captured the boys Division 2 3,200 meters (9:35.82).
Placing second among CCAA athletes in their respective finals Friday were Abby Brunenavs of Maple Grove in the girls Division 2 800 meters (2:19.64); Corinne Inkley of Randolph in the girls Division 2 pole vault (9-9); and Devin Austin of Falconer/Cassadaga Valley in the boys Division 2 long jump (21-7).
