The 4x400 tandem of Kleyn, Martin, James Bryant and Tony Newbern placed fifth, in an indoor program-best 3:29.96.
Cameron Hollins had a solid day, with a fourth place in the long jump (6 feet, 4 inches), fourth in the 60-meter hurdles (8.25 seconds) and 16th in the long jump (20 feet, 9 inches).
“He had an outstanding meet,” Toothman said. “He’s come a long way since his freshman year.”
With Avon on spring break, Toothman had more athletes stick around than in any of his previous three seasons. Part of it, he said, was because they want to write their own piece of AHS history in June.
“This year, with the success Avon’s had, it’s almost like we have to get top-two to keep up,” Toothman said. “We want a trophy just like the other ones have, and these guys have seen how big of a deal it is. To them, it’s like, ‘If they can do it, why can’t we?’”
