Director of Track and Field/Cross Country George Watts: "We had a solid day with a couple of personal bests and decent marks for some of the athletes. Ben Johnson had a huge personal best of over four feet in the weight throw making the final and finishing a very respectable sixth. Jacob Dunlap also had a personal best in the weight as he continues to show steady improvement."
"Katrina Seymour won her section of the 200m right at her season best, and Brett Squibbs is close to breaking his indoor school record in the pole vault as he had a couple of strong attempts at the height he went out on."
"We ran hard last week, and we might have been a little flat today as a result of it. We will just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings."
