Hally (1:59.0) and teammates Colin Parker (2:04.1), Tommy Higley (2:03.1), and John Walker (2:00.1), broke the record set by Tatnall last season (8:06.73).
Senior Ashley Bailey dominated the Pole Vault competition clearing a foot higher than her previous best and beating a strong pair from Padua, Kelly Muschiatti (11-00.00) and Darby Deutsch (10-00.00).

The boys from Dover scored 100 points over 2nd place Salesianum's 57, behind just two victories - Mykele Young-Sanders in the 55mH (7.59), and Khari Bonelli in the Long Jump (21-02.50). Strong finishes in the jumps and points in the relays propelled them to their first win since 2002!
Caesar Rodney's Jeanette Bendolph, went wire-to-wire in the girls' 800m. Her time of 2:15.62 was just .7 seconds shy of a new state record. The states other individual winners were Newark's Rachel Beston in the 3200m (11:09.29), Charter's Anna Nowak in the High Jump (5-00.00), Micaiah Dendy, of St. Georges, in the Triple Jump (37-03.50), and William Penn's Kaywren Phelps in the Shot Put (36-01.00).
