South O'Brien's distanced itself from all but champion Unity Christian as the War Eagle Conference Meet was conducted April 29 at Northwestern College in Orange City. The Wolverines earned 133 points leaving third place Gehlen Catholic (84 points) far behind. The winning Knights finished with 164 points.

The runners-up earned seven first-place finishes. The Wolverines crossed the finish line first in four of the seven relays. They did not enter the shuttle hurdle relay.

Crowned as conference champs in the individual events were Taryn Hintz, with a high jump of 4' 10", Willa Sickelka, who completed the 100 meter dash in 13.37, and Sophia Faust, who led nearly wire-to-wire in the 800 meters, finishing with a time of 2:41.60.

Winning the 4x100 were Hannah Dau, Wylee Sickelka, Sydney Struve and Annika Jenness in 52.73. Hintz and Willa Sickelka joined Struve and Wylee Sickelka in securing the 4x200 in 1:51.37. Emily Chicoine anchored the victorious (in 4:47.29) distance medley relay which also included Dau, Jenness and Faust. The winning carried through to the final event where Faust, Willa Sickelka, Struve and Bauer edged out Hartley-Melvin-sanborn by less than half a second to capture the 4x400 in 4:24.26.

Chicoine placed second in the 400 meter hurdles as did Wylee Sickelka in the 100 meters and Anna Friedrichsen in the shot put. In the 200 meters, Willa placed second and Wylee third. Another third place was garnered by Bauer in the open 400.
