Coach Craig Heynen said...
"The relays today ran very well considering the conditions. The 4 x 200 was a school record and the distance medley relay was a few seconds off the school record. The 4x400 hit the B standard. Overall we performed very well and the team looks well positioned for the conference championship meet."
