On the boys side, the Blue Devils finished eighth overall and had one first-place finish, with Nolan Reynolds taking top honors in the pole vault with a winning jump of 12 feet.
In freshman-sophomore action, the Wayne boys won three individual events and medaled in 12 out of 14 to take top honors in their division. The Wayne freshman-sophomore girls finished third out of 10 teams.
Wayne athletes will be busy this next week with some athletes competing Tuesday at the Wayne Invite and the remainder competing Thursday at the Elkhorn Invitational.
