A small group of Raiders qualified for the Bob Jenkins Coaches Classic Elite Finals meet which was moved up one day to Friday night at Byrnes High School to avoid the rain on Saturday April 24th. Stephen McBeth competed in the High Jump. Jayden McGowan qualified in two individual running events (100 and 200 meters). Luis Rios-Brena qualified in the 3200 meters. The boys 4×100 relay team consisting of McGowan, McBeth, Mali Walker, and Tye Roberson competed along with TJ Garlington in the Shot Put.
Jayden McGowan placed 3rd in the 100 meters with a time of 10.75 seconds. The 4×100 team was next on the track and placed 4th overall with a season best time of 42.80 seconds. Luis would run a season best time of 9:51.88 in the 3200 meter run. This time was a 10 second improvement from his previous best in this event. TJ stepped into the shot put ring and placed 8th after becoming a replacement competitor due to the short notice of the change of date and venue for the event. Stephen McBeth also competed as a replacement in the High Jump.
