A week earlier at the annual News Herald meet, the Warriors brought home the first-place trophy, along with quite a bit of individual hardware.

Cassie Breen returned to the track for her senior season and brought home three medals at the News Herald Championships.

Individually, she was champion of the 800 (2:26.2).

She then joined with Aly Trapp, Curtise Britt and Zakiya Robinson to run to a first-place finish in the 3,200 relay (10:10.4). The same team was also first in the DRL meet (10:05.85).
