Kucera kicked things off with a 3:12.4 in the 1200m, and Robertson blazed to a :51.5 in the 800m. Acosta notched one of the fastest 800m splits of the day with a 1:58.9, while Carter anchored the 1600m in a speedy 4:26.1. The team’s overall time ranks the Knights No. 8 in the state and No. 62 in the nation, regardless of school size. Photos by Ben Draper
