Women's Distance Medley Relay consisting of Sarah Miller, Marilyn McDougall, Gabby Nystrom and Meaghan Gard Ciochon ran up against the stiffest competition they have faced in their careers and despite the outcome (18th place) gave it all they had.

"The field was loaded!  To get into the finals our team would have had to drop 19 seconds off their school record time set the week before at Christian Nationals." states Coach Rich Weinhandl.   "I was so pleased how they competed right up to the finish line!"

In the Men's Heptathlon, David Mellado, Judson's first ever Multi event athlete finished in 15th place.

Coach Weinhandl states how pleased he was with David's performance especially after he no marked in the Long Jump. " Many athletes would have given up right there because their goals were dashed but not this young man. Instead, he comes back with personal best performances in the shot put and the grueling 1000m run!"

Still to compete is Freshman Alisha Barnaby in Saturday's Semi Final Shot Put.
