Max Hoberman and Marsh comprised half of the 4×400 relay team, which blazed to a 3:29.45 1st-place finish.

The blue-and-whites had a bronze medalist: Max Hoberman in the long jump (20-05.50).,
Hoffman was 4th in the 55 meters (6.84); Bradeen snagged 4th in the high jump (6-0).
Hoffman and Marsh’s sprint medley relay team took 5th — but the Wreckers’ time of 3:53.05 sets a new school record.
Jack Scott and Tucker Rizzi also contributed to the indoor track team’s success this year.
