Men's Track and Field returned to the top of the podium yesterday as they captured the program's ninth District Championship and first since 2016. DP earned gold medals in four events but the team title wasn't official until the 4 x 400m relay team clinched it on the final event of the day. Jalen Thompson, Myles Wiley, Arron Edwards and Jacquez Jones struck gold in 3:25.45 to give the Panthers a full ten points (107 total), enough to hold off second place Boone (104) and third place Winter Park (103) in the final team standings.
