Junior Devon Brooks took first in 13.57 seconds, junior Giano Roberts came in second with 13.64 seconds and senior Lafranz Campbell followed in third at 13.76 seconds. 

Trishauna Hemmings then continued the winning streak in the women’s 100-meter hurdles. The senior ran 13.24 seconds to put herself first amongst 23 others.

To wrap up the Friday events, sophomore Caroline Johnston placed third in the women’s long jump, jumping for 5.92 meters.
