Anna Bailey, Nicole Becker, Rachel Wenzel and Joye Jackson finished seventh in the 4x100 relay (1:01.4), and Jackson placed eighth in the long jump (10-10).

Though running in the JV heats, several Wolves posted times that would have placed in the varsity finals. Smith ran the third best overall time in the 400 (1:07.65), sixth in the 200 (30.55) and seventh in the 100 (14.74). Etzell had the fifth best 100 time (14.41) and Anna Bailey the eighth best 200 (31.67).

Mitch Pelroy topped the boys by finishing second in the 400 (53.11) and fourth in the 100 (11.95) and 200 (24.3).

Matthew Hampton grabbed fifth in the 1,500 (4:50.03) and was seventh with Brandon Kelley, Stephen Edwards and Larry Hurlburt in the 4x400 (4:06.57).

Hurlburt added a sixth in the 800 (2:16.09).

Nick Streubel was fifth in the shot (37) and seventh in the discus (85-09). Competing in the JV flight, Austin Nichols earned the eighth-best overall shot put mark (32-08.75).

Coach Randy King said, "An excellent early season invite for us, good competition but not overwhelming for our beginning athletes."
