Turner was victorious in the women's 60m hurdles by a margin of more than a full second thanks to an effort of 9.79 seconds. The junior also just missed out on a top-five finish and came home sixth in the 400m run with a jaunt of 1:05.99.


McPhee had a strong start to her season, running the 60m dash in 8.26 seconds; the second-quickest time of the day. Teammate Alexandria Morrison earned a top-five finish in the 800m run thanks to an effort of 2:44.44, while Jamilyn Nimo came home 10th in the shot put with a top toss of 9.34 meters.
