Liljenwall ran a season-best 1 minute, 8.86 seconds to win the 400 meters, and later added a victory in the 300-meter hurdles (51.89).

Junior Serena Moha won the 3,000 meters in a personal best 13:05.45.

On the boys’ side, Warrenton thrower Mark Warren took the day off, but sophomore Triston Scott had his best throw ever (139-4) to win the javelin, and he added a second-place showing in the shot put (37-3).

Warrenton’s Forrest Bigelow leaped 33-1 to win the triple jump, and the Warriors’ foursome of Erik Cooley, Forrest Cooley, Noah Miller and Jalen Maddox placed second (3:59.28) out of seven teams in the 1,600-meter relay.
