There was no shortage of outstanding performances at the Drake Relays this year.

Picking out the best is not easy, but two local women stand out in the crowd.

The women’s most outstanding honor goes Jenny Simpson. She broke Suzy Favor Hamilton’s Relays record in the 1,500 meters with a time of 4 minutes, 3 seconds.

Top girls performance goes to Des Moines Roosevelt’s Agnes Sayeh. She won the 100 meters, and anchored three Rider relay teams that won white flags.

Saturday’s sellout was the Relays 48th straight.
