The Lady Hurricane had 123 points while the Lady Astros finished with 105. Clinton-Massie was fourth and Blanchester finished sixth.

East Clinton set two meet records in its runnerup finish.

The 4×800-meter relay team of Molly Seabaugh, Kaylyn Deaton, Jordan Collom and Carah Anteck ran 11:01.16 to establish a new meet best time.

Libby Evanshine cleared 4-10 to match the previous record of Clinton-Massie’s Mandy Duncan who also cleared 4-10 in 2015.

Ainsley Whitaker of Blanchester picked up a victory in the discus, posting an 85-11 effort to finish on top.

Clinton-Massie won the 4×200-meter relay with Leah Binau, Kylee Lamb, Morgan Riggers and Madi Bayless clocking a 1:59.18, nipping a hard-charging WHS quartet by less than half a second. Binau, Bayless, Riggers and Lamb then went 55.69 to win the 4×100-meter relay in a photo finish with East Clinton.

Anteck, who earned the coveted Brett Wightman Award for ECHS seniors, won the 1,600-meter run.
