Competition was keen on Saturday as 16 teams battled for top honors at the Hotchkiss Invitational track meet in Delta.
The Bruin girls did not have a first place finish and used second place points from Emily Tullis (100 meter hurdles - 18.0) and Katie Hyke (shot put - 35' 11") to score 51 points to finish fifth in last weekend's Hotchkiss Invitational track meet.
Cami Baldozier, Kylee Hanson, Grace Hatheway and Hannah Hatheway ran the 3200 meter relay in 11:21.03 to place third on Saturday.
Cedaredge's all-freshmen 4x100 meter relay team (Makayla Kehmeier, Brie McGovern, Reganne McIntier and Summer Young) put together a 55.81 race to finish fourth in an 11-team field.
Other fourth place finishers for the Bruins included Grace Andrews (shot put - 32' 11") and Holly Jenkins (discus - 100').
Fifth-place points came from Tullis in the 300 meter hurdles and Hyke's 96-0 throw in the discus event. Andrews was seventh in the discus and Camie Baldozier had a seventh place finish in the 1600m run.
McGovern finished eighth in the 400m dash.
