it a perfect day to run fast at the All-American Invite hosted by Adrian

three finishes in six events.

day started with a solid effort in the 4 x 100 meter relay. Going into the

meter hurdles in 55.58.
Schroeder, Duerksen, Versen and Yeo ended the day winning the 4 x 400
meter relay. It was Duerksen on the second leg powering up homestretch to give
the Golden Eagles a lead that would grow to nearly six seconds by the time Yeo
crossed the finish line in 3:21.27.
