On the girls end, the Eagles nearly won, with 75 points, a number only topped by Pulaski's total of 80 points, aided in no small part by Blue Devils star Katie Weisenberger sweeping to three victories in the 800, 1,500 and 3,000-meter runs.

Rachel Scott and Lisa Kimak went 1-2 in the 400 hurdles, as Scott won in 1:12.46 and Kimak gained second place in 1:13.99.

Also, Scott took second in the 400-meter dash (1:04.39), with Kim Foltz fourth in 1:05.42 as she also got fourth in the 800-meter run.

Rachel Betts ran to third in the 200-meter dash (29.18 seconds) and fourth in the 100-meter dash (13.61 seconds), with Williams fifth in the 200 and sixth in the 100. Kimak was sixth in the 100-meter hurdles and Phebe Alley earned sixth in the 1,500.

In field events, Mackenzie Sawyer was third in the triple jump (29 feet 7 inches) as Courtney Hourigan took fourth place in the long jump, going 13 feet 5 1/4 inches. Molly Hourigan was fourth in the high jump, clearing 4 feet 10 inches.
