After the first day of the Amherst Division I Regional Track and Field Meet, Saint Ignatius stood in first place in the team standings, or rankings if you prefer, by one point. Midpark was second.
Four events were scored on Wednesday evening with most of the action consisting of prelims.
The highlight for the 'Cats was a second-place finish in the 4x800-meter relay. Lamar Kemp, Nick Kobunski, Drew Galang and Evan Baum did the honors.
In the prelims, Kevin Johnson was second in the 100-meter dash and Saint Ignatius had finishes of third in the 4x100-meter relay and fourth in the 4x400-meter relay.
Friday's crucial second day of competition will get underway at 4 p.m. The top four in each event advance to next weekend's (June 4-5) state meet in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at The Ohio State University.
