out goes to the girl's team for rallying to put together a 4 x 800, despite not
competing in this event all year and having a team consisting of two throwers, a
sprinter, and a pole vaulter. Though this team of Brianna Salome, Justice

individuals as well as a relay team that earned Regional honors with their 7
place performances. In so doing, Senior Sophia Kokales established a new career

season personal record in the pole vault by one foot which resulted in her once
