Gina Carnovale and Paige Corso gained a 1-2 finish in the 200-meter dash, as Carnovale won in 27.98 seconds and Corso (28.42 seconds) claimed the runner-up spot.

Gabrielle Jordan was second to RFA star Jessica Razy in the 100-meter dash (13.14 seconds), with Alyssa Hingre fourth in the 400-meter dash in 1:05.29.

In distance races, Jaimee Balloni earned a second-place time of 2:26.52 in the 800-meter run, while Anne Peterson took second (11:22.55) and Mallory Warner (11:30.27) third in the 3,000-meter run. Ashley Shaheen got fourth in the 1,500-meter run in 5:23.71. Also, Lydia Darling was fifth in the 400-meter hurdles (1:14.75) and Lizz Sawyer got sixth (18.84 seconds) in the 100-meter hurdles.

Sierra Earle gave the Bees a victory in the discus, throwing it 89 feet 9 inches as Erica Miller (85 feet 5 3/4 inches) finished third. Kaleigh Castetter was fifth in the high jump, clearing 4 feet 8 inches, as Andrea Pateras tied for fifth in the pole vault and added a sixth (30 feet 8 inches) in the triple jump.

Jordan, Balloni, Mackenzie Ross and Quaneisha Ivey teamed to take second place in the 4x400 relay (4:17.41) as Julia Johnson, Alexandra D'Huy, Abigail Nelson and Rachel Beneway earned second in the 4x800 (11:12.31). The Bees also got fifth (54.09 seconds) in the 4x100.

A day later, at the South Jefferson Invitational in Adams, the B'ville boys track team dominated, with 131.5 points, nearly double the total of runner-up West Genesee (75 points) and the rest of the field.
