There were a number of young men who also placed in 7th or 8th and scored points for the team but did not receive a medal.

This was one of the most impressive events that Coach Drake and I have watched in a long time. The boys ran with heart and wanted to win this meet from the beginning. There were several PRs including an 8 second PR in a very impressive mile relay. The wind and chilly weather did not stop some amazing performances.
