— Yet Peinkofer, Ross, Fleming and Steve Keegan only finished fourth (9:46.63) in the 4x800 relay. McArdell was fourth in the 110 high hurdles (17.19 seconds), with Sam Smith (17.64 seconds) in fifth place, matching his finish in the triple jump.

Allen, on her own, did the 400 hurdles in 1:08.66, putting her second to Liverpool’s Ore Akinpelu (1:06.47). Marissa Lathrop was third in the 400 sprint in 1:01.73, while Katie Wicks (1:02.71) got fourth place, and Annie Peterson was fourth (11:04.22) in the 3,000-meter run, with Emily Thompson sixth.

Piontkowski, Peterson, Kim Cushman and Kelley Hull were third (10:30.73) in the 4x800. Meghan Hull ran to third in the 2,000-meter steeplechase (8:05.18) as Hannah Wood took fifth (17.40 seconds) in the 100 hurdles. Elise Seifritz was fifth in the 200 as Melissa Voyer took sixth in the long jump.
