While the girls finished atop the podium, their points came from second- and third-place finishes.

On Saturday, a select number of athletes from the Cruiser boys team loaded up and headed to Shelton for the 62nd annual Shelton Invitational.

The Cruisers were outgunned in the meet and placed 19th out of 39 teams.

One bright spot for the Cruisers was Kyle Cox, who set a personal best in the shot put with a throw of 48 feet, 4 inches, passing Cruiser alumni Chase DeMoor and Blake Sjoblom to move into third place on the Eatonville High School records list behind Lucas Hatton (second place – 54 feet, 8.75 inches) and former state champ Justin Kaelin (first place – 59 feet, 5 inches).
