Carlson was the girls high jump winner by getting over 5 feet and she also captured the 400 meter race, getting to the line before Madison Smith of Lexington, by nearly a second quicker, in 58.96.

She won both the 100 meter (12.31) and 200 meter (25.40) races, claimed the long jump with a new personal record of 19 feet 1 inch and her second place finish in the 400. Lexington scored 83.5 as a team with Smith responsible for 38 of those.
