Israel Miles ran a new PR in the 100m to finish second behind the current state leading time, won the 110m hurdles, and then went sub-40 seconds for the first time ever in the 300m finishing just behind the state leader at that point as well. Lane Marshall was our only individual dual event winner taking home the crown in both shot put and discus. Also finishing as overall event winners on the varsity level were Tyler Quincey (high jump) and the 4x400 relay team of Ricky Ascencio, Indy Daniel, Wyatt Lovell, and Jake Follett.
