Daytona Ferrie and Kendra Hoversten made it a clean sweep of the throwing events for the Hawks, as Ferrie captured the discus and Hoversten the shot put.

Ferrie had a throw of 99-8 to hold off Hoversten, as she placed second. Hoversten’s launch of 32-10 won her the shot put.

Sydnee Flaugh, Makena Galetich, Tanna Thompson and Ashlyn Erickson cruised a gold in the sprint medley relay, clocking a time of 2:00.64 to win the event by almost three seconds.

In the final event of the night, the 4×400 relay of Brooklyn Doolittle, Galetich, Erickson and Thompson posted a 4:39.14 to pick up first place over Des Moines Christian.
