Neither the boys or the girls teams picked up any points in the finals that took place on Thursday.
Celina's Erik Chapin jumped 20-3 in the long jump competition, but it was good for the 12th best effort and kept him from making the finals.
Julie Snyder came up strong with the fastest qualifying time in the 100-meter hurdles for the Runnin' Women, posting a quick 15.33 seconds in the event to bolster the chance of reaching state competition her freshman year. Snyder will also get opportunities with the 800 and 1,600 relays, both of which qualified for the finals with showings of sixth in the 800 meter and fifth in the 1,600-meter relay.
Jenna Schmitmeyer, who also ran legs of two qualifying relays, qualified in the 300 hurdles with the fourth-fastest time of 46.74 seconds.
For the boys, Kelly Mallory was 11th in the 400 qualifiers, missing a chance for the finals and the 1,600-meter relay he was part of placed 13th and also did not qualify. The remainder of field events and running finals will take place on Saturday at Amherst.
Snyder will go for a berth to state in the long jump along with teammate Eryn Langenkamp. Chapin will get another chance to qualify for state as well in the high jump.
