In girls action, Emma Kowalski took the win with her throw of 135-6.  The Hilliard Darby sophomore has won all five hammer competitions that she's competed in this season.  Kowalski had a season's best result of 140-9 at the Centerville Elk Relays in April.  Just a rising junior, Kowalski figures to be a force on the throwing scene for years to come.  Among her career highlights is a first place result in the weight throw event at the 2018 DI Indoor State Championship.  

On the boys side, Erik Fertig was riding high after coming off a DII State Championship win in the discus competition earlier in the weekend.  The Eastwood junior claimed the hammer event victory due to his throw of 195-11.  Fertig owns an impressive pr of 204-2 which he achieved at the 2018 Eastwood Relays.
