Senior Ryan Whitcomb also did well for the Bulldogs, winning the long jump and taking second in the 55-meter dash.

Junior Steve Mages took second in the 55-meter hurdles. Junior Tommy Flannigan took second in the 800-meter run. Senior Andrew Jones took second in the triple jump. And eighth grader Aaron Bachman moved up to the varsity pole vault and took second place, clearing a height of ten feet.

The Bulldogs' home meet - scheduled for Monday, April 8 - has been moved to Monday, April 15, due to the snowy spring. The Bulldogs are scheduled to have their first outdoor at Annandale on Thursday, April 11, starting at 4 p.m.
