Topper head coach, Rick Tiberg commented that “With this snowy spring it was great to have a meet even if it was indoor. Running in the gym and hallways was getting very old. The meet was small but good. I was happy with the results. We had many with PRs, and many that won their event.”

The boys’ team dominated the competition taking seven first place finishes out of thirteen events. Jacob Kopaz had a pair of first place finishes, first in the 40m dash with a time of 5.15 and then in the 300m dash with a time of 41.38. Quinn Taylor also racked up two first place finishes in the field events. In the long jump he jumped 19’ ½” and in the triple jump he went 39’ 9 ½ ”. The other first place honors went to Andy Grant in the 400m with a time of 1:02.5, Matthew Bauman in the 800m with a time of 2:31.56 and Ethan Kahler in the 50m High Hurdles with a time of 7.59.
