SARANAC LAKE - Saranac Lake's Nickie Trudeau went out with a bang in the final home meet of her career on Tuesday at the high school.
The senior etched her name into the school record books with a time of 1:06.0 in the 400-meter hurdles, eclipsing the old mark set by Hannah Sporn.
Trudeau will leave Saranac Lake with three track and field school records: pentathlon, the 100 and now the 400 hurdles. She tied the 100 record last Thursday in Lake Placid with a time of 12.5 seconds.
"Records in these three events show her real talent," said Saranac Lake coach Peter Frenette. "She really wanted the 400 hurdles record at the beginning of the year, and the 100 record was a bonus. She worked very hard to get these records."
Trudeau was a four-time winner Tuesday, taking the 100 in 12.7 seconds and the high jump with a 4-6. She was also part of the winning 1,600-meter relay team that clocked a 4:25.2.
Other winners for the Red Storm girls were Vanessa Salamy with a 16.7 in the 100 hurdles and Regan Kieffer with a throw of 85-2 in the discus.
The Saranac girls lost 79-53 in the team scoring, while the boys lost 65-58.
Jamaal Tuthill was a two-time winner for the boys, taking first in the 800 in 2:12.8 and was part of the 1,600 relay that won in 3:50. Ethan Barge won the 100 and the 200.
Kyle McGrain won the shot put with a throw of 39-6 and Patrick Woodward won the discus with a 108-10.

Plattsburgh 6, Saranac Lake 3
PLATTSBURGH - The Saranac Lake baseball team fell behind early and never recovered Tuesday on the way to a 6-3 Champlain Valley Athletic Conference loss to Plattsburgh.
After the Red Storm jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the top of the first, the Hornets posted three runs in the bottom of the first and two more in the second to take control of the game.
"We had a rough start to the game (defensively), giving up five consecutive hits and three runs," said Saranac Lake coach Bill Wilson. "The team struggled thereafter and had difficulty stringing together runs. We will have to do a better job of keeping strong as a team and remaining upbeat if we are to compete in sectionals."
