A day packed full of action will kick off with the 4x200m, where the Coatesville boys will have the fastest time so far this season in the field in a PA No. 2 of 1:28.95. They'll look to fend off Central Bucks West (1:31.29), Spring Ford (1:31.64), and Abington (1:32.36).

The DMR will follow and Twin Valley will come in with the top seed time. A current PA No. 5 of 10:39.24 but they can't get too comfortable. Father Judge has run 10:39.65 this season and Abington finds themselves in the mix as well at 10:43.08. Council Rock North, Downingtown East, Hatboro Horsham and Great Valley could all mix in.

The 60m dash will start the day in the open races and it looks to be a tight race. Conor McFadden (Central Bucks West) owns the top seed time in 6.95 (PA No. 3). Though he doesn't have much cushion, Asir Moore (Imhotep Institute Charter HS) and Lavar Jackson (Upper Darby) will look to break their tie at PA No. 4 with their shared time of 6.98.

Ty Tindal (Martin Saints Classical High) and Tony Hicks (Springside Chestnut Hill Academy) will battle it out in the 60mH. Tindal has run 8.38 so far this season and Hicks is right behind at 8.41. Jey Brown will be the next closest in 8.56.

Asad Reese is right behind him in 49.02. Those are the two favorites but you can't count out Conor McFadden (49.64) and Walton Garnett (49.36). 

The 800m has Anthony Engle (Twin Valley) and Brian Dicola (Hatboro Horsham) looking to move up the PA leaderboard and find victory. Engle has run 1:55.89 and Dicola isn't far behind with 1:56.
