Crossett's Lady Eagles won a barn-burner over Marion in an exciting 131-128 win in a six team meet. Marion trailed by 127-118 going into the 4x400 relay and did what they had to do by winning in a spirited 4:31.24 in a close call over Vilonia.  However, Crossett only had to take 7th to secure the win and finished 5th for the final margin.  Kayla Daniels led the way for Crossett with 35 points by winning the 55m and 200m, taking 2nd in the LJ, taking 3rd in the HJ and running a leg on the 2nd place 4x400 team.  Brittney Leftwich of Greenwood led all scorers with 38 points with three wins (55m hurdles, LJ and TJ) and a 2nd in the HJ.  Leftwich's efforts in the hurdles and TJ were good enough for a pair of new 2nd best marks for the Arkansas All-Time Best List.

Helena-West Helena Central used an impressive team performance by scoring in every event except the PV and winning only three events (Shot Put, 3200m and 4x800 relay) to earn a 124-103 win over Greenwood in a ten team meet.  Hunter White of Greenwood led all scorers with 35 points by winning the LJ, TJ and PV and taking 4th in the 55m hurdles.
