On the girls side, Lawrence’s Brenna Schwada earned two first-place finishes. She won the 200-meter dash with a time of 26.29 and made a leap of 16-06.00 to win the long jump competition.

Free State sophomore Marrah Spriggs, who dealt with an injury to start the season, won both hurdle races. She finished in 17.45 in the 100 hurdles and 50.95 in the 300 hurdles.

Oona Nelson was Bishop Seabury’s lone first-place finisher. She won the girls 800-meter run with a time of 2:31.89. Nelson also took second in the 1,600-meter run, finishing behind Isabelle Pro of Free State.
