Leanna Mulloy blazed to 1st in the 100 in 12.6, anchored the 4x100 winners, ran a strong 3rd overall in the 200 and a terrific 3rd leg of the 4x4. Dedicated thrower Jazmyne Mehay was the overall discus winner, her hard work paying off once again. Mehay threw the disc 97'-3" to claim overall honors.
