Individually, the distance girls led the way. Morgan Powers beat the field in the 800 meter run (2:26.95), improving her previous best of 2:29.65. She has the sixth fastest time in the area. She also scored 6th in the 400 (1:13.14). Molly Yockey took 3rd in the 3200 meter run (13:00.85) and Blair Johnston was 4th in the 1600 run, breaking 6:00 (5:58.89).
