"I was very pleased to see our girls step up in all the events we were entered. To even be selected to compete in the meet is an honor and to place at the top of any event is even more difficult considering this is a representation of the best athletes in the Midwest. I thought the Sprint Medley and Distance Medley Relays ran extremely well and had great team chemistry. The one thing I did notice is our girls had a lot of fun over the weekend which is what the sport of track and field should always be about and think it will help us gain momentum heading into our championship meets in May," coach Jesse Griffin said.
