Kokomo finished in fourth place with a score of 71 points. South Bend Adams was the overall winner with 105.5 points.

The Kats placed in every event, except for the 100-meter hurdles.

“We were projected to score between 75-85 points, and we were really close to that goal,” Kokomo coach K.O. Jackson said. “Not placing in the hurdles really hurt, but we had some ladies who stepped up emptied their tanks and put some food on the table for us. It’s been a while since we’ve had a distance runner place so we are all pleased with Cin’s Andrews effort. She put in four miles of running.”

The Kats’ Summer Blackamore was a double winner. Blackamore set a new meet record in the discus with a distance of 127-feet, 6-inches. She was also tops in the shot put (41-3).

Kokomo’s Deju Miller won the high jump (5-0) and Lana Pham was second with the same height.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant.
