Purple Eagles prep for title defense


Anchored by a quintet of high All-League meet place finishers, Albion is prepping to begin defense of its Niagara-Orleans   girls track title at Akron on April 19.
Sophomore Abby Squicciarini, who won both the 100 and 200 meter sprints at the All-League meet last spring, heads that key   group.
That quintet also includes senior Eboni Taylor, who won the long jump and placed second in the 110 hurdles, sophomore Grace   Rich, who won the 1500 and took third in the 3000, senior Natalie Mastrangiola, who placed second in the pentathlon, and senior   Laisha Harrison, who took third in the 400.
The Purple Eagles veterans also include seniors Nicole Nesbitt and Katelynne Klosser and freshman Megan Rosato who teamed   up with Rich on the 3200 relay as well as sophomore Kayla Doyle and eighth grader Mariah Elsenheimer who combined with Taylor   and Squicciarini on the 400 relay.
“We’ve got a great returning group and the girls are excited to start,” coach Mark Hryvniak said.
The Purple Eagles other upperclassmen include seniors Anika Keller and Sarah Olles along with juniors Brieanna Dixon, Skyler   Greene, Bretania Jones, Tia Lipscomb, Cady Messmer, Alessaundra Rivera, Gretta Smith, Taylor Soule, Tiffany Standish and Elizabeth   Torbio.
Akron, which finished second in the N-O last year at 5-1, is led by junior Kaylee Zbytek, who won the 800 and placed second   in the 1500 at the All-League meet, along with senior Ashtin Fiegel, who placed second in the long jump and Molly Gorski,   who took second in the 200.
Albion’s home opener will be May 1 against Roy-Hart.
