Junior Breanna Alston ran a personal-best 24.12 in the 200m, which was good for a fourth-place finish. The 24.12 in the 200m dash ranks her second all-time in App State history. Senior Amanda Hamilton paced the field in the 3,000m as she crossed the line first with a 9:49.28. The time marks her second-best time of the season as she ran a 9:48.20 in the Kentucky Invitational.
Freshman Audrey Diener took home the first place finish in the unseeded pole vault as she jumped for 3.69m, while Cassie Crawford finished eleventh in the seeded pole vault with a 3.69m jump.
