Eli Miller did not run finals due to a conflict with baseball. He ran a hand time of 22.1 and FAT time of 22.36 in 200 preliminaries for a new meet and school record. Luke McConnell ran a personal best in high hurdles.
"I would have loved to see Eli run the finals of 100 and 200 and Luke in finals of 110 high hurdles," Coach Kramer said. "I am sure those two alone would have gotten us enough points to outdistance Newton. But, they had a non-conference game against T-town so were not able to compete."
Jake Keown could not compete in the triple jump.
"Like I said earlier, Tyler Hendryx could not compete in relays," Coach Kramer said. "I am going to have to rethink the dual participation agreement. I really think that we should have all of our team here for our own invitational. It is our one big home meet."
Miller had a personal best jump, taking second in long jump. Darin Breeden won his second big meet at high jump. Luke Hatfield tied his personal best of 13-6 to finish second in pole vault.
Marcus Skinner a personal best of 9:59 in 3200. Cory Powers had a PR in the 1600. Jaden Stockdale also got a PR in the 1600 (4:49.1).
"I want to make a special mention about Seth Applegate," Kramer said. "He has had an injury the last couple of weeks and it has slowed him down. We decided it was best to shut him down, as to not hurt the leg any further. It is too bad Seth got hurt. He really had a couple of outstanding practices and I felt he was ready to make a big drop in his times. We will let him rest a little and then he will start running for college. He will still be around and help the team any way he can. He has had a great career and it has been a pleasure and honor to coach him. He has been a great leader and will be hard to replace his example of leadership and dedication."
