“The athletes competed to the best of their abilities. Brooke Runyan broke her own 800m record with a PR of 2:36. Macey Hein tied the High Jump record and Brianna Bowyer the pole vault record. The 8th grade boys 4×200 and 4×400 also broke school records. The 4×200 set in 2013 by A. Esquibel, T. Carter, J. Zimmerle, and D. Ricord. The 4×400 record was from 1994 by the team of D. Thomas, O.
