The meet began with a ceremony honoring the seven seniors on the girls and boys teams: Lyndsey Lehr, Michelle Schafer, Reilly Zajac, Tyler Ayers, Nate Fleishman, Joe Koch, and Jacob Lange.  Both Schafer and Fleishman, in addition to their own individual events, were members of 4x400M relays teams that battled it out with their neighboring rivals.  Fleishman held off Trumansburg in the final leg of the boys relay for a win over Trumansburg while Dryden took the top spot overall.  Schafer anchored the girls relay and fought to hold off Dryden's fourth runner Abbey Yatsko who narrowly edged out Lansing by 0.4 seconds.

Lansing girls swept several events over one or both teams on the track and on the field and had many individual overall wins: 3200M relay, 100M hurdles (Emma Dhimitri), 400M dash (Mikaela Garcia), 3000M run (Catie Eisenhut), long jump (Emily Gallagher), triple jump (Garcia) and pole vault (Gallagher).  Dryden standout Abbey Yatsko took control of all of her races, winning the 100M dash, 400M hurdles, 200M dash, and the 4x400M relay.  Molly MacQueen of Trumansburg raked in points for her team with victories in both the 800M and 1500M runs.
