Angelos Karkalis brought home the individual title in the 800-meter run, while Photis Karkalis took second in the 1-Mile Run. The meet served as the final "tune-up" of the indoor season, heading into next weekend's Horizon League Indoor Championship in Youngstown, Ohio.
Angelos Karkalis crossed the finishing line in 1:55.15, convincingly outpacing the field of nine runners. Meanwhile, Photis Karkalis ran the 1-Mile in 4:21.00. Gunnar Sterne also finished second in the 800-meter run (1:55.85), while Aimee Schuh placed third in both the long jump (5.05 meters) and 60-meter hurdles (9.12 seconds). Zach Harman (12.20 meters in the weight throw) and Jordan Banks, who leaped 12.81 meters in the triple jump, both collected third-place individual tallies.
