Corning swept to boys and girls team titles in Thursday’s Southern Tier Athletic Conference track & field championships on a cloud-covered but dry evening at Windsor High.

The winning boys score of 104 points made for a 22-point margin over runner-up Ithaca and made it three consecutive conference titles for the Hawks.

Corning’s girls won in runaway fashion, totaling 130 points to 76 for runner-up Elmira. Binghamton was third with 66.

STAC records were established in both steeplechase races, with John McCarthy of Corning posting a 9-minute, 11.86-second clocking over 3,000 meters, and Katie Butler of Corning going 7:00.46 over 2,000 meters for the girls standard.

Corning freshman Jessica Lawson ran 4:31.86, a STAC best in the 1,500.
