LANSING | Despite five first-place finishes between them, the consensus between Crete-Monee's Tineja Foy and Latris Daniels was that Wednesday's cold temperatures had a big effect on both times and distances.

Daniels and Foy helped lead the Warriors to a first place team finish at the T.F. South Invitational with 141 points.

Illiana Christian (90.5) placed second in the team competition, while host T.F. South (79) finished tied for third.

Foy captured first place in both the 100-meter hurdles (15.6 seconds) and 300 hurdles (52.79). Daniels won both the long and triple jump. Both girls were members of the Warriors' winning 1,600 relay.

"It's all about time and improvement with us," Foy said. "The times were pretty good today even though it was really cold out."

Teammate Simone Fears captured first in both the 100 (12.91) and 200 (26.41).

"Today wasn't my best but it was enough to get me some first-place finishes," Daniels said. "It actually does bother me in the cold. These conditions are tough."

T.F. South's Cece Keys finished first in the shot put and second in the discus.

Highland's Khi-Lee Warner placed first in the discus with a throw of 99 feet, 2 inches.

"My form was golden," she said. "My third throw I hit 99, and thought I wanted to hit 100. I'm glad I hit 99, because I'm progressing at every meet. My highest is 103, and I'm hoping to get way past that."

Keys was under some pressure after she found out a coach from Eastern Illinois University was watching her for consideration at a possible scholarship.

"We all thought it was an important track meet to come out and do our best because we are at home," Keys said. "When I realized he was here, I just threw really well today. He was there standing pretty close so I had to overcome the pressure today."

Illiana Christian's Alexa Beezhold finished second in the 800 (2:31.44). The Vikings had four second-place finishes and could not get over the hump.

Crete-Monee's Chasity Powell was immediately behind Beezhold in the 800 (2:31.85).

"I'm not really feeling too well and the weather was bad," Beezhold said. "Still though, I'm happy with a second-place finish, which was good."
