Day one is in the books at Wichita State University and to say that Lansing and Leavenworth High Schools will be busy Saturday at Wichita State University is a bit of an understatement.
Leavenworth's 3,200-meter run finalists on both the boys' and girls' sides finished in seventh place to score points for the Pioneers.
Greg Flores (9:49.66) and Taryn Schoen (11:43.82) both recorded scoring times early in the day to get Leavenworth on the board.
Later, Arik Parker of Leavenworth, finished fourth (148-09) in the boys' discus final.
Both Lansing and Leavenworth's team were further down the day one standings as most of their top point scorers were set to take the WSU facilities with plenty of chances to collect an ample amount of points.
