In the half mile race, Phylissa Greeley ran a personal best of 2:14.20 to place third, which moved her up to No. 8 on the all-times list in the 800. In the mile, Tristin Van Ord placed second with a personal best of 4:55. 67, which ranks fourth in App’s history books. Along with Van Ord was Kathryn Farina and Torre Moser who also clocked personal bests of 4:58.63 and 4:59.01 respectively and are now sixth and seventh on the mile all-times list.

The Black and Gold also grabbed first-place victories in the 3,000 meters, long jump and triple jump. Emily Fedders cruised to first place with a lifetime best of 10:11.06 in the 3,000 meters.
