“It was a good meet for us as we met some quality competitors,” Madison coach, Steve Barrus, said. “I was really pleased with Karson Hastings, Val Clarke, Cooper Poll and Gavin Fuller as ran really well in the relay and in the individual races.”
The four sprinters took first in the 4 X 100 relay in 43.34 with Hastings winning the 100 (11.08) and taking second in the 200 (22.71) with Clarke taking fourth and Poll taking fifth in the 200. Spencer Stutz had a good meet taking second in the 3200 and third in the 1600.
