For the men, the throwers’ 4x100m relay team consisting of Aaron Gantt, Jackson Crumpton, Brennan Perkins, and Samuel Maw cruised to a victory. Brennan Perkins placed first in shotput and Jackson Crumpton finished first in the discus throw. In the women’s competition, the throwers relay was also won by the team of Natalie Turner, Sadie McKinney, Ella Harned, and Emma Bridges. Amber Saitta won the 400m run, Daileigh Pilgrim won the women’s high jump, and Faith Dorton finished first in women’s triple jump.
“One thing that coaches really take pride in is seeing athletes progress and get better. Week in and week out, we see more names at or near the top of leader boards in our meets. That is a testament to the hard work and dedication from the men and women on our teams as well as the coaching staff who work with these young people. Let’s keep getting better. Good things are happening.”
