Girls – Laken Lewis had another bang up day, with wins in all four of her events including a new school record jump in pole vault, clearing 11-4.

Wendy Beveridge took first in the 100 and second in the long, triple and high jumps.

Boys- the 4X800 relay easily team took another win.  Team members pictured Noah Schill, Dan Ketner, Don Cunningham and Nick Schill.

Nick Schill won three events, as he also had a district qualifying time in the 1600, crossing the line at 4:53 and was a member of the winning 4X400 relay, which also included Don Cunningham, Noah Schill and Josh Mitchell. Noah Schill had a great day as a four event winner adding on the 400 and 800 races. Nathaniel Lerch won the 3200 by far and took a second in the mile. Don Cunningham also added a second place in the 800, with Jacob Smith in third, to sweep this event again against their opponent. Jacob Smith also took second and in the 3200. The distance boys really work hard to better each other by providing friendly competition at practice and during meets.

Also racking up some points on the track were Dan Ketner and Keagan Phillips taking second and third in the 300 hurdles, Cody Hofius third in the 110 hurdles, Josh Mitchell third in the 400.

In the field, Gavin Brinkley was a three event winner in the jumps and added a third place in the 100. Beau Verdill followed up with second places in the long and triple jumps and a third in high jump. Clary McElravy earned places in all three of the throwing events with a second place in discus and shot put, with a personal best put of 39-11.75 and third in the javelin.
