In the pole vault, Cody Lee took 4th place with an 11 ft. vault. Lee also competed in the 4x100 relay along with Ramos, Uriel Cortez and Jake Beaman. They finished 7th overall with a time of 46.61.
In the women’s triple jump, Skylar Gallagher achieved a personal record with a combined jump of 31’-6.5.” Gallagher finished 5th overall.
“All the coaches are very pleased with the way the kids performed this year,” said Fulton. “The kids came out in such a short season and they worked incredibly hard, and they’re already getting excited for next year. They want to get in the weight room, they want to train early, they want to get into some camps. That’s fantastic for us.”
