8th grade:

The 8th grade team won their fifth team title of the season, remaining undefeated as they edged out rival Williamsburg by a mere two points.

She was second in the open 100 and anchored the winning 4x100. Swart, along with Maddie Edgington, Ella Cadena, and Sidney Davis smashed the school 4x100 record, easily winning the race in a time of 54.71. They have yet to be beaten all season.

Tori Boyse remained undefeated in the discus, winning with a throw of 81-9. She holds the school record of 84-11, thrown earlier this season. Sophie Marshall made huge improvements on the hurdles and was able to place 6th and 5th in the 100 and 200m hurdles respectively.

"It was truly a team effort to win this meet and every point they earned was necessary to keep their team undefeated," coach Melissa Fleming said.
