Milford athletes saw marks improve at Centennial April 16. The Eagles finished third in the girls’ team standings and sixth in the boys’ competition.
All three high jumpers earned medals. Chloe Kolb won the event at 5-0. Elizabeth Ross was fourth and Marissa Walker fifth.

Sydney Bontrager picked up second in both the shot put and discus. Hingst said she improved her distance by a couple feet in the shot put at 34-8.
Ashley Kroese and McGuire both ran personal best times in the 1,600-meter run where they finished third and fourth, respectively. Kroese also finished third in the 3,200-meter run, and Naudia Larsen was third in the 300-meter hurdles.
