Roxana and CM were followed by: Madison (51), EAWR (36), MEL (16) and the Explorers (13) rounded out the field.

“I knew it was going to be a battle,” said Shells coach Juli Akal, “with Civic Memorial and Madison; we're all pretty evenly matched this year, so I took the opportunity to change things around a little bit with our lineup, not knowing what they had and hoping It would work out in the end, and it worked out for us.

“There was some strategy involved, that's for sure; I pulled out some of my main guys that normally just run relays and put them in individual events to try to get more points; I tried to make sure we placed two people in every event today, and that makes a difference for us.”

“In some areas, we did real well and some, this is the weakest we've had all year,” said Oiler coach Russ Colona. “We had a real late night Friday night; the kids ran real well in Sparta – a couple of places, we fell backwards today. A lot of kids stepped up too.”
