It was a beautiful day with plenty of sun, but just a bit too much wind for most people.
The Bulldogs crushed their opponents by outscoring their nearest competitor by 60 points.
It was a great day individually as well, with many personal bests recorded.
Junior Ryan Whitcomb lands in the long jump pit with a personal best leap of 20' 3.75".
