Then in the 200, her time of 27.33 placed her sixth out of 20 competitors.

The top showings for the men on the track also came in the 400. Junior Arkangelo James (below right- Pittsburgh, Pa./Baldwin) and freshman Kyle Minger (Richmond, Ohio/Edison Local) dominated, with James taking first place in a time of 52.29 and Minger coming in second at 52.88. The third place finisher was nearly a half-second behind Minger.
