With their goal of running their fastest times at our last meet of the season, the Corner Conference Meet, the boys are working hard to ensure that happens.

Top 3 finishes included Kywin Tibben with 1st place in the 1600, Josh Martin got 3rd in the 100 Hurdles, the 4x800 team of Brandon Huddle, Axel King, Kywin Tibben, and Josh Martin finished in 3rd, the 4x400 team of Kaiden Foster, Brandon Huddle, Jonan Wookey, and Damian Meek finished 3rd, the 800 Sprint Medley team of Jonan Wookey, Kaiden Foster, Damian Meek, and Josh Martin finished 3rd and the 1600 Distance Medley team of Jonan Wookey, Kaiden Foster, Damian Meek, and Brandon Huddle finished in 2nd.
