The girls’ team earned a third place finish, while the boys’ team earned a sixth place finish in the Grant County Invitational.

“It was a great meet in my opinion,” coach Brian Soules said. “I was impressed with both the boys and the girls’ 4x400-meter relay teams. They both won their events, running their best times of the year. At a large invitational like this, it’s their best performance this year so far.”

The girls’ 4x400 meter relay team is made up of Caylin Hare, Taylor Cummins, Michelle Willoughby and Natalie Norman. The girls’ 4x800-meter relay team took second place, as Rebekah Brewer replaced Hare.

“I thought the meet went well,” Norman said. “There’s a lot of girls that are working hard and it’s starting to show. It helps everyone know that we have a chance and that we can make it to state if we try.”

The boys’ 4x400 team is made up of Devin Smith, Michael Schultz, Brandon McIntosh and Jeffrey Covington. The boys’ 4x800-meter relay team also took second place, as Dylan Jackson replaced Smith.

“The meet went well for us,” Covington said. “We’re getting better and with each race, our times are getting better. It gives us an idea of where we’ll be at when regionals comes.”

“I’m happy that they’re motivated to run well on their home track,” Soules said. “It shows they have a sense of pride in defending their turf. There were quite a few athletes that had their best times of the year.”
