Pomainville now owns the top two times in Division III history in the event.

Pomainville, a 2017 Franklin Academy graduate who holds Geneseo’s records in the 1,500 and 800, finished ahead of Edinboro’s Stephanie Parsons, who placed second in 4:14.22.

n South Lewis’ Hannah Ielfield, who is bound for Division I University of Mississippi next fall, finished 13th in the High School Girls Mile at the Music City Track Carnival on Sunday.
