On Saturday Mikhaela Woodard started out the day by placing 3rd in the 1600 with a gutsy performance. With the entire field having a slow first two laps she attacked the race, taking the lead and pulling the field out to make it a 3 person race. She was caught by the 2 girls but ran a fantastic 5:16, closing the last 800 in under 2:35. Jacob Graham was up next, and he ran a personal record 4:34 to take 8th place, again scoring for the team. He attacked the middle of the race jumping into 5th place while a pack trailed him and finished strong.
