Madariaga sets Fredonia record

Senior breaks 51-year-old mark with 10.9 100-meter dash

OBSERVER File Photo Fredonia’s Oliver Madariaga, center, broke a 51-year-old school record Monday evening.

Oliver Madariaga has found the Fredonia record board.

And he may not be done yet.

The Hillbillies’ senior set the program record in the 100-meter dash Monday, but Southwestern beat Fredonia 95-45 in a Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association Division 1 meet.

Madariaga finished in 10.9 seconds, which converts to a 9.97 100-yard dash. The previous Fredonia record of 10.1 seconds in the 100-yard dash was set by Greg Follett in 1970.

Madariaga also won the 200 meters in 22.6 seconds and the 400 meters in 51.1 seconds. At last Friday’s CCAA Division 1 league meet, Madariaga was just off the converted school record times in those two events.

Rick St. George (1972) and Matt Decelio (1976) both ran 22.5s in the 200-yard dash. Madariaga’s best of 22.5 in the 200 meters converts to a 22.73 in the 200-yard dash.

James Krupinski ran a 50.06 in the 400 yards in 1991. Madariaga’s time at Friday’s league meet in the 400 meters converts to a 50.09 in yards.

Madariaga will have two more chances to set the school marks. He will run in the Section VI Class B meet Thursday night in Falconer and the Section VI Division II meet next Wednesday in Falconer.

Vance Alvarez, Jaden Kinnear and Nate Lewis were all double winners for the Trojans.

Alvarez captured the high jump (5-6) and triple jump (38-8); Kinnear claimed the 110-meter hurdles (16.4) and 400-meter hurdles (1:03.2); and Lewis took the 1,600 meters (4:55.3) and 3,200 meters (10:54).

Matt Linder was a double winner for Fredonia, prevailing in the long jump (19-4 1/2) and tying Alvarez for first in the triple jump (38-8).
