Brigham Nielson performed likewise, ending with a fifthplace finish in the 110 hurdlesandsixthinthe 300 hurdles. Junior Ryleigh Laws had a series of admirable races. In the 800 meter she placed fourth with a time of 2:46 (the sixth-fastest time for a female junior in San Juan High history). Laws also placed ninth in the 200-meter run. Representing the team in the throwing events was Tyler Winn with a fifth-place performance in the javelin and ninth in the shot put competition.
