BLOOMFIELD – Davis County High School staged the annual Dennis Anderson Relays in front of a large crowd Tuesday night in Bloomfield.

The Pekin girls managed relay wins in the 800 sprint medley (1:57.45) and the 4x400 (4:24.65). In the individual events, Kerrigan Pope was again a double winner for the Panthers, taking the discus with a throw of 114 feet and winning the shot with a heave of 34 feet and eight inches.
