A trio of third-place finishes highlighted Paonia's boys' day at last Saturday's Delta Invitational meet.

Warren Minerich posted two of those third-place scores in discus and shot put competitions. Minerich sailed the discus 114-08 for third in that event and tossed the shot 41-06 for six more points.

Paonia had a fourth-place finish from Cameron Van Vleet in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.97.

Blake Benson also participated in the discus and shot events where he placed fifth in both. Austin Katzer was fifth in the 110-meter high hurdles, with Van Vleet taking fifth in the 100-meter dash.

Caden Meilner had an eighth-place finish in the 3200-meter run and the Eagles' 4x800 relay team posted the same place finish.
