Knapp placed first in the 100- and 400-meter hurdles, and the long jump in helping B-G/A’s girls to a second-place finish in the 13-team meet.

The Bobcats finished with 89 1/3 points, four behind winner Norwich. The host school finished third with 79.

In one of the faster events of the meet, Knapp won the 400 hurdles in 1 minute, 8.07 seconds. Cooperstown’s Kristin Ratliff and Danielle Perrino finished second and third in respective times of 1:09.89 and 1:10.77.
