Athletes from 33 teams converged at T.C. Williams High School on Saturday for the annual invitational meet.

With most sprint events having eight or more heats, and throwing/jumping having up to five flights, it was an all-day event that packed fans into T.C. Williams’ stadium to watch the competition.

Many of George Mason High School’s Mustangs improved upon their performance in the various events while competing against 4A, 5A and 6A schools. There were 11 personal records and two season best records set at the meet.

In the time between their events, Mustang athletes were able to watch other teams compete in pole vault and steeplechase, and in all events see some of the top competitors in the region from the largest schools.

Adding to the list of Mason athletes qualifying for the Virginia High School League 2A State Championship Meet were freshmen Logan Funk, Estelle Timar-Wilcox and Linnea Skotte in the 3200-meter run, junior Blaise Sevier in the 800-meter run and the boys 4×400 team.
