Morgan Winters led the girls team with three top-six finishes. She placed third in the girls’ triple jump with a leap of 30 feet, 9.5 inches, fourth in the girls’ long jump and sixth in the 55 meter dash.

Abby Dickenson was sixth in the girls’ shot put and Haley Wiskoski finished sixth in the 55 meter hurdles.
