The Jaguar squad started the meet strong, scoring 50 points in the first 9 contested events, and coasted past the opposing Marauders with an impressive 95-42 victory.
Leading the charge for the Jags was Lyric Spears (Sr.) who scored 15 points in her 3 individual events, with victories in the Long Jump (17' 1/2"), 100m High Hurdles (15.50), and the 100m dash (12.8). She also added a successful leg of the winning 4x100m Relay (53.9), along with Marisa Kepes (Jr.), Jessika Palmarchuk (Jr.), and Emma Watson (Fr.).

Gianna Tiberia (So.) had a quality day in the jumps, vaulting to 8'0" in the Pole Vault to lead the field and followed with a runner-up leap in the Long Jump (13' 7 1/2").
