The team of Lois Miller, Nicole Worsham, Rikako Kida and Alex Brown bested their higher-ranked opponents, Shawnee Springfield, by nearly 10 seconds, finishing in 10:49.91.
Antone Truss ended up with a share of first in the boys high jump (6’0”), since that event was halted midway through. He also came in second in the long jump (19’08”)AnnDee Pettiford placed fourth in the long jump (13’9”).
