Freshman Felecia Olmos made the finals in both the long jump and the 200 meter dash. "I was really impressed with her, she did very well for being the youngest competitor at the meet," said coach Jewkes. Olmos went on to place seventh in both events.
"We didn't have our whole team with but we had a lot of people set personal best times," said coach Jewkes. "We used this meet to see where we stand in the region and it looks to be a very exciting year," concluded the Carbon coach.
