The Mustang Broncos cruised to their third straight meet championship last week and successfully defended home turf with a dominant performance in the 2024 Bronco Invitational.

The Broncos won 12 events, including sprints, middle- and long-distance runs, hurdles, relays, and throws. They cleared the second-place Piedmont Wildcats by 150 points on route to the victory.

Aidan Edwards (Sr.) and Derek Straughn (So.) won two events each to lead the Broncos individually. They also combined to help guide three relay victories.
