The Bishop Lynch boys and girls each took fifth place Friday in Carrollton at the POPCS Adidas Relays, hosted by Prince of Peace.

Athletes waited out several weather delays but still managed to grab medals in more than a few events.

BK Obi and Jane Onuoha won gold for Bishop Lynch in the high jump and 110 hurdles, respectively. Diana Effiom earned silver in the shot put and bronze medals were taken home by Ryan Sheaffer (800 meters), Jake Bayouth (discus) and Elli Jordan (discus).

A pair of Lady Friar relay teams also medaled during the meet, winning silver and bronze.

The 400-meter relay team of Kristen Phoenix, Sarah Kronenberger, Payton Pargo and Abby Lister finished third while Kronenberger, Onuoha and Pargo teamed up with Isabella Campos to take second in the 800 relay.

Bishop Lynch is back in action Wednesday at the TAPPS 6A District 1 Championships, hosted by Liberty Christian School.
