Junior Shelby Goodson also had a top finish in the 100 meter finishing in 2nd.
For the boys, Senior CJ Roberson finished 1st in shot put (38′ 5 3/4″) and 3rd in discus (109’4″) while Junior Elijah Hicks won the 100 meter. Sophomore Carter Adams finished 3rd in the 3200 meter in a time of 11:40. The Eagles will be back on the track on Tuesday when they run a tri-meet at Lutheran NW at 4:30.
