The 4x200-meter mixed relay team of Chris Knudson, Francesca Hale, Brandon Doble and Emily Moranda finished third.
Jasmyn Jewett finished sixth in the triple jump, and Alyssa Saltzgaber was eighth in the triple jump.
Tiger track coach Rich Urquidi thought it was a fun meet for his Tigers.
"There were quite a few schools there, some new schools that we haven't run against. Filer's 4x100, they were moving, they ran really well, and some of the little schools were there that placed well. I thought it was good for some of our kids to see some new people, and we got to run at Boise State. That was important to get to do some things there because that's where state is. That's one of the reasons we go to the Boise Relays.
"We're still coming along. We still need to do some improvements with some things, and we're still working at getting people through district to state, and that's basically our ultimate goal."
Urquidi indicated they will host a meet with Meridian on Thursday that will basically be a JV meet as most of the varsity will be at the YMCA Invitational at BSU Friday and Saturday.
"Thursday's meet will be a JV meet to get some kids that are not going to compete on the weekend a chance to compete on Thursday."
