Although none of Jackson's four medals was gold, she and three other Lady Wildcats -- freshmen Jacqueline Anderson and Betty Goodman and sophomore Saria Leimkuehler -- did finish fourth in the 800-meter relay (1:52.29).
Jackson came in fifth in the 200-meter dash (27.77 seconds), eighth in the 100 (13.85) and joined Goodman, sophomore Marissa Weiher and junior Niki Kruger for fifth in the 1,600 relay (4:22.01) to close the second day of competition.
Slater tallied 15 points for these efforts, plus Kruger's eighth place in the 1,600 (5:42.69), to finish in 19th place in the team standings -- won by sectional foe Southwest of Ludlow with 48 points.
Chamois claimed the boys' title with 48 points, while the Wildcats were 28th with nine points from senior Jeremy Wilson's fourth in the 200 (52:11), seventh in the 200 (23.57) and anchor leg of the seventh-place 800 relay (1:37.36) behind freshman Adrian Clark, sophomore Travis Holt and junior Cody Skinner.
Junior Tyler Armstrong was fourth in the long jump (20 feet, 1 inch) for all five of Malta Bend's points, while Sweet Springs got two points due to junior Tyler Hollrah's eighth in both the long (19-8.25) and triple (40-5) jumps.
Of Santa Fe's six entries, none medaled. Two wound up scratched and the best senior Logan Kirchhoff could do in his four events was ninth in the triple jump (40-2).
The Lady Chiefs' top showing was a third in the discus (112-5) by senior Cassie Wright, the defending state champion. Junior Lauren Aversman also medaled with a seventh in the long jump (14-9.75).
The Lady Greyhounds got a bronze medal from freshman Chelsea Hollrah, tying for third in the high jump (5-0). Junior Hollie Heaper was eighth in the shot put (33-3.25).
