The other Raiderette events struggled throughout the night, with the highest placing track event being the 4×100 relay in 4th place with a time of 53.94. That team consisted of Tiril Sjøberg, Keirston Klommhaus, Jaycee Knight and Payten Lambert.
The Raiderettes finished eighth overall in the meet, with Panorama taking top honors.
The girls will be competing in their events on Friday at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. with discus first and high jump coming second.
