The heat winners and runner ups had at least 6 other competitors to compete against. While the top 4 finishes had 12.

Leading the way was Brooke Maxwell who placed 6th out of 45 runners in the 400 meter Dash, Jade Anderson who placed 11th in that same event and the 4×400 meter relay team of Brooke Maxwell, Cici Campero, Jade Anderson and Desirae Bundy finished 6th out of 22 teams. That same 4×400 meter relay team set a team’s best time under the current coaching staff by three seconds already. Great job ladies and keep up the hard work.
