Julia Fleming finished 6th overall in the 400m with her season's best and missed qualifying for state by less than 1 second.

Julia and Olivia finished 4th and 6th in their heat of the 200m with a region overall standing of 10th and 12th in the event.
The 8th grade boys showed great potential debuting at the meet. Gavin Sharp ran his season's best of 13.87 in the 100m finishing 10th overall. Avery King and Tucker Echols also ran their season's best in the 200m in 27.63 and 27.99 respectively.
