After Porter won the 100-meter dash in a time of 11.10 seconds, Desequeira finished second in the 200 with a time of 23.09 seconds. Leading the distance team, Scott finished second in the 800 with a time of 2:00.41.
Bettendorf continued its excellence in the field events, led by strong performances by both throwers and jumpers. Carter Bell finished second in the long jump with a jump of 21 feet-5 1/2. In shot put, Alex Blizzard and Griffen Deere finished in first and second place. Blizzard threw for 45 feet-11, while Deere threw for 45 feet-10.
