The Hornets split the meet, beating Holly 84-52 and losing to Fenton 83-54.

The pair also took first and second in the 300 hurdles, finishing with times of 45.23 for Silvas and 46.58 for Etson.

In the 1600 relay team of Silvas, Malik Davis, Braziel, and Griffin took first with a time of 3:36.44.

In the shot put, junior Eddie Harris took third with a put of 41 feet, 9 inches.

Junior Dylan Buschur threw the discus 125-11, his best of the season, to win the event. In addition, Harris took second in the discus with a throw of 123-05.

In the high jump, Etson cleared the bar at 5-02, which was good enough for third place.
