Unrau won the long jump, 100 meters, 110-meter high hurdles and 300-meter hurdles for the Bluebirds, who finished with 49 points.

Herington won the boys? competition with 80 points, Inman had 53 and Hesston 47.

On the girls? side, even though the Bluebirds won only one event?Tara Goerzen in the javelin?their depth carried them to a team victory with 75 points.

Inman and Hesston tied for second with 66 point and Herington finished fourth with 39.

?It was a nice surprise to win the meet,? Stucky said.

?Since we?ve had such poor weather and limited practice, we had absolutely no concern about marks or points or places or team finishes,? he added. ?We were far more concerned about kids giving a good effort, which they did.?
