Helping Archbold in the boys meet was the fact that they won three of the four relay events. Winning for the Swanton boys was Brett Bettinger in the 3200m, Anthony Howard in the 800m, and their 4×100 relay team.

In the girls meet, the Streaks won all four relay events. Furthermore, Emily Roth was victorious in the 200m and long jump.

Swanton got victories from Jordan Furko in the 3200m, Julia Smith in the high jump, Heather Williams in the shot put and Sidney Taylor in discus.

At the Otsego Invitational on Friday, the Swanton girls and boys teams both placed fourth.

Throwers led the way for the Swanton girls as Heather Williams won the shot put and teammate Sidney Taylor was second. In the discus, Taylor took home the title, while Williams was fourth.

The Swanton 4×100 throwers relay team of Noelle Vidak, Cydney Christensen, Williams and Taylor also took first place.

Also for the Bulldogs, the 4×200 relay team of Shae Hallowell, Haley Nelson, Allyssa Westfall, and Bridget Harlett was second. Julia Smith was second in the high jump. She tied the meet record, but Regan Clay of Rossford, a winner of four events, bested her by two inches.

On the boys side, Swanton had runner-up finishes from Anthony Howard in the 800, Dylan Gilsdorf in the 1600 and Brett Bettinger in the 3200. The 4×1600 relay team of Josh Bradish, Tanner Callicotte, Brad Rhegness, and Bettinger was also second.
