Last Saturday, the Warriors took part in the annual Knights Invitational at West Holmes High School.
The Warriors had a decent showing, finishing sixth out of 14 teams with 48 points.
“I was happy with how the girls performed,” Woolf said. “We placed sixth out of 15 teams and represented ourselves very well. We scored in all the running events except for two and got some great experience in each of the field events. We have been moving some people around to find good spots for them and a lot of them are really taking to the coaching and are trying their best. They didn’t really care that it was cold and extremely windy.”
Stephanie Donley led the way for the Warriors with a pair of second place finishes in the 100 and 400-meter dashes with times of 13.90 and 1:05.87.
