Molly Dry Invitational At Mansfield University, on April 9, Huffman and Allyn brought home individual titles in the girls’ 800 and boys’ high jump, respectively. Huffman shaved over five seconds off her best time of the year in the event to finish in 2:24.76. Allyn cleared 5-8 before falling out of the competition.
