“We had a solid meet,” said Hornets coach Steve Oury. “It was great to see Brandon Murray get a good jump in the triple jump after sitting out the Hornet Relays with an injury issue. I thought Diante Woodson ran his best race of the season in the 400 and ran a good anchor leg in the 4 x 400.
“We had a few areas where we didn’t perform as well as we are capable but, overall, I thought we did pretty good,” he added.
The Hornets are scheduled to run again at the Panther Relays in Cabot on Tuesday, April 3.
