The boys finished 2nd out of their 11 team field which included 5 AA and AAA teams. The girls got 3rd place out of their 10 team field, finishing just 2 points out of 2nd place.

Maddie Christensen lowered her 800 time with a 2:34.95 timing and Morgan Zacharias bettered her 200 time with a fine 26.92. Zach Weaver soared 6’0 in the high jump and ran a splendid 52.28 for 2nd place in the 400. Christian Martinez bettered his old mark with a throw of 35’06 in the shot put. B.J. Bailey had a huge night with personal best times of 22.21 in the 200 and 52.50 in the 400. Vinnie Vercelote set a fast PR of 42.76 in the 300 hurdles and both Jordan Neu and Shane Milburn lowered their 800 times with 2:07.99 and 2:07.27, respectively. Dave Cronin bettered his 1600 time with a 5:08.42.
