Both the Blue Devils and Blue Angels came away with top honors over SGHS, River Valley and Ohio Valley Christian, as the Blue and White won their respective divisions by at least 39 points apiece. GAHS also claimed victories in 22 of the 32 total events held at the annual meet, with both the boys and girls winning 11 individual events apiece.


The Blue Angels posted a winning score of 123 points, which was 39 points ahead of runner-up River Valley and its 84 points. The host Lady Rebels were third overall with 26 points, while OVCS placed fourth with two team points.

The Blue Devils posted a winning tally of 95 points on the boys side. The Raiders were second overall with 52 points, while South Gallia finished third with 15 points. The Defenders did not have any individual entries in the boys competition.


Junior Jacob Click paced GAHS by winning four event titles, which included gold in the 110m hurdles (16.90), 100m dash (11.64), 200m dash (24.06) and the long jump (19-10.75).
