Madison Schurle won the 100 hurdles with a personal-best time of 16.5 seconds, and Rebekah Stuhlsatz won the 3,200-meter run in 13:08.
The Wabuansee boys finished fifth with 71.5 points.

“We’re at the point in the season where we should start seeing some of these big improvements,” Wabaunsee head coach Roger Alderman said. “We’ll also see some athletes ‘hitting the wall’ a little bit before pushing through it in the next few weeks, but there’s still lots of upside.”
if we work to do all of the little things that will make the difference when we get to league, regional, and state.”
