The McEachern Invite once again did not disapoint, as 42 MileSplit USA 2nd team Elite performances were achieved. Heavy hitter teams from super sized 7A schools, Archer Boys and Westlake's Girls came out and made a statement that both would be in the mix for team state titles (Westlake to defend theirs)

Sterling Warner of Archer flat put on a show in the short Sprints. Warner first had a blazing 10.37 in the 100m dash, and later turned in a 1st place effort in the 200m at 21.78. Chidi Okebalama won the 300h going 38.85, after just getting nipped by thousandths of a second in the 110h at 14.66, by Rainey Anderson of Westlake. 

Rainey Anderson and Chidi Okebalama had a photo finish in the 110 hurdles.

Chapel Hill won the Boys 4x100.

Westlake rolled to the girls team title scoring 90 points. Trinity Williams won the 100 hurdles posting a 14.94 and took 2nd in the 300h at 44.67. 400m specialist Kennedy Simon won the Long Jump going out 19-01, Westlake's 4x100 squad took first while resting a an athlete or 2 for region clocking a 47.26.
