Amara Oguchi brought another win in the Discus and a school record in the Shot Put. Jack O'Riordan brought a win in the High Jump and Ben Currin scoring in both the Shot Put and Discus.

Madison Breaux and Travis Birdsall scored in 100/110 Hurdles and 300 Hurdles. Cadan Hanson led the way with our distance crew winning the 3200m.

We also had a strong showing in the relays. Boys 4x4 and 4x2 plus Girls 4x4 scored points. The boys 4x1 had a solid showing in their first competition.

I am looking forward to seeing the continued development of these hard-working athletes and the remainder of the team that set many personal bests at this meet.
