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

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).
