After dropping the baton in the 4x1 1/2 -lap relay in Thursday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association meet, some Mount St. Joseph sprinters spent all day Friday working on the exchange.

At yesterday's Loyola Blakefield Relays, the Gaels made certain it didn't happen again, winning the event - one of five on the day - on their way to a team victory at Loyola's $20 million athletic facility.

The Gaels finished with 64.5 points to top Loyola (63) and Westminster (36). North Carroll captured the girls meet with 44 points, followed by Franklin (36) and Bryn Mawr (34).

The North Carroll girls outpointed a strong field by capturing top-three finishes in five of nine events.

"We have a lot of good athletes and some depth, so that allowed us to do well today," said Panthers coach Jim MacDonald. "We talked about trying to do your best in support of your teammates, and I think they did well with that. Our third and fourth runners all did well."

North Carroll took first place in a pair of events, with Lindsay Winter clearing a meet-best 9-6 to lead her team to victory in the pole vault, and the foursome of Katie Riley, Aislinn Sowash, Lisa Engle and Ashley Williams winning the shuttle hurdle relay.
