Steve Slaton in the 60 Dash. He went 7.05 in the Trials, then long-jumped a US #6 23-3.50 over 40 minutes, then came back and won the 60 finals in 7.07. Nicole Leach in the 60 Hurdles Trials, one of her three meet records on the day. She posted 9.31, 7.83, 24.96, all meet records, and a cruised to a 57.97 win in the 400, one of several events she already had the meet record covered.

West Catholic's Nicole Leach took the 60 Dash, 60 Hurdles, 200 and 400, while Steve Slaton, Conwell-Egan, captured the 60 Dash, 200, 400 and then a US #6 Long Jump. Leach set three meet records, breaking two of her own, including the 60 in 7.83 and the 200 in 24.96. She also set the new 60 Hurdles record of 9.31 seconds. Slaton posted a US#6 and meet record 23-3.50 Long Jump; and took the 60 in 7.07 (7.05t), the 200 in 23.17, and the 400 in 51.36.

In the 800, Bonner's Dave Maguire posted the 3rd sub-1:58 of the season, going 1:57.76. Carroll's Mike Tilger took the Mile in 4:21.04. O'Hara's Steve Hallinan, coming back from an injury that severely hampered his training for four weeks, ran 2nd in the Mile in 4:25.57, 4th in the 800 in 2:01.43, and also ran the 4x800. He said he was not expecting great times, but "that the foot feels good. I'll be back."

West Catholic's Latavia Thomas led wire-to-wire in the 800, going 2:16.30. St. Hubert's Amy Kelly won both the Mile (5:05.18) and the 3000 (10:10.91). Prendi took the 4x200 in 1:46.67, catching West Catholic (without Leach), which went 1:46.90. Cardinal O'Hara repeated (comfortably) as the boys' Team Champs, while Archbishop Ryan repeated as the girls' Champs by seven over St. Hubert's and ten over West Catholic.
