Jersey's Murphy said Anne Snyders and Kiara Chapman were standouts for the Panthers in both winning relays.

“We ran really well in the meet on Friday,” Megan Wilson, the Jersey girls track and field coach said. “We tried to give some kids veracity experience. I am loving the grit and the heart of these girls. They are finishing every single race and that is exactly what we want to see.”
