The meet was originally scheduled for last Tuesday; however it was moved to Friday due to bad weather.
No team scores were kept.
Four girls won individual gold medals at the indoor meet. In the field events, Kassie Hoyme won the shot put, throwing 39 feet, 1.25 inches.
Three running events also took first place. Alexis Hove picked up her second gold medal in the 55-meter dash this season, this time winning in 7.70 seconds. Senior Anna Madrigal picked up first in the 800-meter run, clocking in at 2:37.12. Shana Kelly came up big in the 3000-meter run, crossing the finish line in 11:46.55.
