Beulah won the meet with 110.5 points – just one more than Williston (109.5).

The Bulldogs got a taste of victory twice, with Avrie Nohava tying for first in the high jump with three other athletes after clearing 4 feet nine inches.

The other victory came in the 4x800 relay with the foursome of Rhyann Heyen, Landyn Gerbig, Julie Sarsland and Jaci Fischer combining for a time of 10:47.86 – almost three seconds faster than the team from Dickinson in second place.

In the 4x400 relay, the quartet of Esmerelda Madrigal, Jenna Buchholz, Sophia Headley and Claire Stafford ran a 4:34.25 to place fifth.
