A big challenge was put out to the throwers to beat any 4x100 relay team. At the end of the night, they did beat a team and hence they (Teynor, Keene, Rickleff, Ritchie) earned themselves pizza from the coach. They stepped up big with a new season PR- 59.99. Also stepping up big was the 4x200 relay team (LaRocque, Nolan, Nicholson, Ko. Jaynes) by knocking out a new season PR- 2:04.16 as well. The 4x400 relay team (Katzung, Schneider, Hager, Ka. Jaynes) finished in 7th to pick up team points with a 2:47.43. Finally, the 800m sprint medley team (Ritchie, Nolan, Nicholson, Ko. Jaynes) snagged points with an 8th place finish with 2:13.01.

For the boys, Spencer DeHart hammered out a new PR- 5:47.11 in the 1600m and 24th place. Max Anthony also ran himself to a 23rd place in the 1600m. Preston Hendrix picked up 8th place in the 100m with a 12.71. Ryan Drinkwine picked up 27th place and Lee Steiger hit a PR in the 100m with a 14.77. In the 400m, Joey Gourdin picked up 20th and Thomas O’Brien picked up 22nd place.  

Ben Teynor had a nice night as he picked up 4th place in the 110 high hurdles, 3rd in the 300 hurdles and 5th in long jump. Jonah Hornseth picked up 19th in the 110 hurdles and 8th in the high jump. The 4x400 relay team (Anthony, Steiger, Nettesheim, DeHart) picked up 10th place on the evening and the 800 sprint medley (Gonzalez, Wall, Nettesheim, Hendrix) also picked up a 10th place.
