Blair Johnston and Molly Yockey of Shelbyville were 3rd and 4th. Yockey then dominated the 2-mile by a mile (17 seconds).

State champion hurdler Taylor Adcock (CAM) took the day off from her specialty, buit her teammates picked up the slack. Kaitlyn Corzine and Ryan Dooley went #1, #2 in the 100 and 300 hurdles to sweep the events.

Genny Rose Stringer was untouchable again in the discus sailing 30 feet farther than 2nd place. She was 4th in the shot as Karly Goodman of Arthur was still too strong in the shot put. But Abigail Hilton (CAM) put her self into an impressive 2nd, just two feet back.

Jason Pokalsey (CAM) swept the sprints at Monticello last Friday to earn Atlete of the Week honors. At the Bi-County it was Derek Williamson of Neoga that got the sweep of the 100, 200, and 400 dashes. Pokalsey was runner-up in all three events.
