Smryna reigned supreme in the sprint relays, Saani Edwards, Shaneese LaMons, Aniyah Black,  and Sierra Romaine won the 4 x 100m with a MOC meet record time of 47.99, #3 All Time! Lauren Summers replaced Romaine in the Eagles winning 4 x 200m/1:41.38, #6 All Time! They were also runner-ups in both the 4 x 400, second to Tatnall, and the 4 x 800m.

Freshman sensation Anaeja Ferrell, of St. Georges, claimed the 200m/24.87, after a false start prevented her from challenging Bailey-Perkins in the 100m.
