Both teams made a good showing in the first meet of the season, with the girls bringing home six first-place finishes and a team placing of fourth place, while the boys recorded the top spot in the 1600-meter relay.

Ray Ray Bell and Rianna Clark both had solid meets as they finished with three and two first-place finishes, respectively. Bell earned the top spot in the 800-meter and 1600-meter, and Clark finished first in the 400-meter and the long jump.

Bell teamed up with Mia Walker, Rachel Bratton and Priscila Samaniego to win the 3200-meter relay event.

There were four second-place finishers in the girls meet with Payton Jones doing so in both the high jump and 300-meter hurdles, Acacia Charles earning the placing in the long jump behind teammate Clark, and Samaniego finishing second in the 3200-meter.

The Goldbugs boys 1600-meter relay team that brought home the top spot included Garrett Ritter, Gavin Perez, Reese Martin and Dawson Manning. In the 800-meter relay, Manning teamed up with Steven Willyard, Mitchell Meyer and Davion Murrow for a third-place mark.

The Alva boys added three Top 3 field event finishes as well. Dylan McGuire and Garrett Ritter finished back-to-back in the high jump with McGuire taking the second spot just ahead of Ritter in third.

Kellen Claflin had the second longest throw in the discus.
