Tim also set personal bests in the 100m dash and 200m dash. “Tim had a great day on Saturday and his hard work and dedication is paying off in his senior year. The rest of the season should be fun to watch as Tim continues to push harder and harder on the track and in the weight room,” said Head Coach Jack Dillard

For the Warrior Women, it was a busy day as they won the individual 200, 800 and 1500 as well as placed second in the 400m, discus and 4x400m relay.
