Izzy Dieter, also in the discus, improved her #3 all-time mark by several inches, and is closing in on the #2 spot all-time. 

*The highlight of the night, however, belonged to the Girls sprints. While winning the event by well over 3 seconds, the Whippet girls 4×100 meter relay etched their names into the history books, establishing a new school record in the relay. Their time of 50.08 bested the previous record, set in 2004, by over two tenths of a second. The relay team included Sophomore Calli Grosinske and Seniors Maddie Buehler, Emma Weigel, and Kindyl Kilar. Congratulations!!
