The 3200m relay team, consisting of Erin Curran, Erin Walker, Kylie Krecklow, and Mattie Murren set the tone for the running events with a 10:11, which ranks sixth best time in Class B this season.
Erin Curran and Erin Walker both recorded personal bests in the 1600m, with Curran reestablishing the number one time in Class B at 5:18 and Walker recording a 5:45. Hailey Sloup continues to shine in the 300m hurdles with a personal best 51.9. All in all, I felt that we competed very well throughout the day and gave ourselves momentum going into the conference meet this Saturday.
