Zoe Harves (high jump, pole vault) and Olivia Coleman (long jump) were the other individual winners. Other runners on the 400 relay were Javin Whiteside, Coleman and Taylor Riggs.
“The girls battled rain, wind and monsoon conditions to finish second. The weather did not affect them mentally due to the fact that we have practiced in worse conditions.
