After winning a Southwestern Conference title last week, Avon girls coach Sam Ulery said it was big for his program.

Winning the Division-I district title on May 19 at a drenched and cold Amherst is even bigger.

The Eagles scored 124 points, ahead of runner-up Amherst (103.5) and Magnificat (89.5). The Avon boys finished second behind St. Ignatius (164) as the highest local team with 77 points, followed by Amherst (65).

“Over the last three or four years, we’ve been talking to the girls about taking the next step,” Avon coach Sam Ulery said. “Tonight, we far exceeded my expectations. We qualified an athlete in every single running event, all four of the relays, discus and long jump. It was an amazing night.”
