In the girls portion of the C-NS meet, J-D had 26 points and put itself in sixth place, while ESM, with 16 points, tied for seventh.

Many of those points were earned in the shot put, where Tangela Hightower and Brooke DeRoberts, second (88’3”) and third (80’11”) among individuals, respectively, had their combined throws of 169’2” prove more than 16 feet better than runner-up C-NS.

Individually, Patrece Martin had the top triple jump off 33’1”, edging C-NS’s Jade Jenkins by a single inch, with Martin and Mackenzie Maxam fourth (59’7”) on the team side.

Rachel Fairbanks beat 53 other runners and won the individual mile in 5:18.94, but the team only finished sixth as ESM’s quartet of Natalie Marra, Gabby Pallotta, Maria Miner and Brittany Kubecka gained third place in 23:16.60.

But the Rams were third in the 4x100, where Martin, Maxam, Taylor-Rae Danforth and Ally Fox got to the line in 53.27 seconds. Hightower and Jesenia Haynes made their way to fifth place (52’2”) in the shot put. Danforth and Allison Semmel were sixth in the 100 hurdles.

ESM saw Bridget Benz and Paige Courbat rise to third in the 400 hurdles relay in 2:38.09, beating J-D (2:42.12) in fifth place. Nina Zesky’s third-place clearance of 4’8” in the high jump led to a fifth-place team performance with Ashley Sgro.
