Helaman Forsyth PR'd in both the 1600m and 3200m, Madelyn Kremer Pr'd in both the 100m and 200m with her 100m time made it onto the All-Time list.Ty Mellor ran the 110m and 300m hurdles for the first time in his life and did a great job  in 2 tough events. The boys 4x800m relay (Christian Moeller, Helaman Forsyth, Gio Cervantes, and Adam Whitehead) ran for the first time this year and have provisionally qualified for state.  Alissa Kassebaum ran a PR in the 800m and finished 2nd overall.

The Chargers traveled to the Copper Classic, at Copper Canyon HS in West Phoenix on Saturday, but results were not available at the time of publication.
