Kramer Crider won the 1,600-meter run for the second time in as many meets with an impressive time of 4:55.08. He also claimed second in the 3,200-meter run.

Vince Stewart (triple jump), Logan Campbell (pole vault) and Justin Jones (javelin) also helped the Eagles with respective individual victories throughout the day.

Other local schools that participated included Good Hope and Holly Pond.

The Lady Broncos earned a fifth-place finish due to strong performances from Megan Barksdale and Mykenzie Heaton.

Barksdale claimed second and third in the 200- and 400-meter dashes, respectively, while Heaton placed third in the long jump.

Chris Whitehead was the top contributor for Holly Pond on the boys’ side, securing second in shot put and third in javelin.
