The boys fielded a 4x200m relay with Bryce Davis, Tyran Jacobs, Jahlyn Madison and Brandon Beasley, which placed 10th.

The Indians top placer at this meet with a two foot personal best in the triple jump was Brandon Beasley with a jump of 44' earning a tie for 3rd place and 5th place in long jump with a jump of 21'.

Coach Mandy Godbee said, “I am very pleased with the hard work and results of these athletes. This was a very challenging meet and we are not accustomed to running on an indoor 200m track, but they stepped up huge and competed with some of the best athletes in 3 states. I'm looking forward to a very successful season.”
