Sailor Hutton, meanwhile, finished second in the 1,500 with a fast time of 4:47.98, just behind Summit’s Fiona Max (4:46.95).

That combined with her time of 10:16.18 n the 3,000 meters at the Bandon Small Schools Invitational last week, gives the senior easily the top Class 2A times in both events for this spring.

Aero Franklin was fourth in the afternoon session of the 800 in 2:12.61 and Isaac Cutler was fifth in the 1,500 in 4:39.94 during the afternoon.

Cutler (9:44.52) and Franklin (10:00.41) finished 1-2 in the 3,000.

Oscar Munoz led four Tigers in the top eight in the 100, finishing second (12.40). Junior Diaz was fifth (12.59), Noah Figueroa seventh (12.86) and Jack Davis eighth (12.95).

Munoz also was second in the 400 (25.09) and Diaz eighth (26.79), one spot in front of Devinn Manicke (27.18).

The Tigers had the top two 4x100 relay teams. Nathan Austin, Diaz, Munoz and Manicke finished in 48.93 and Figueroa, Wyatt Dyer, Duval and Davis finished in 49.88. A third Bandon team, with Snyder, Cutler, Franklin and Jordan Myrand, was fourth in 50.53.
