The winning team was comprised of herself, Emme, Brianna Johnson and Amelia Wallace.

In addition to the 4x200, the Owls swept gold in the other two relays contested on Friday, with the sprint medley relay team - Emme, Kristi Palmer, Apperson and Wallace - posting a 4:26.37 time and the distance medly relay squad - Apperson, Palmer, Wallace and Lee Anna Sanders-with a time of 13:25.21.

The Owls also picked up a 2-3 finish in the long jump, with both performances equalling or bettering school records. Apperson posted a best leap of 4.59m (15-0 3/4), matching Burton's school record, good for third in the event, while Emme shattered the existing record with a leap of 4.84m (15-10 1/2).

Emme also added a mark of 9.40m (30-10 1/4) in the shot put to take fourth in the event, with Jenna Brown adding a mark of 8.74m (28-8 1/4) for fifth.

For the men, four events witnessed top-five performances, paced by Stockton's mark in the shot put. He obliterated his previous record with a put of 15.50m (50-10 1/4), nearly a full meter further than his previous best of 14.85m (48-9).
