The Westfield girls' track team dominated the competition to win the Saxon Track Classic on Saturday, and Robinson edged Jefferson and host Langley to capture the boys' title in McLean.

The Bulldogs were sparked by senior Karen Woolley, who won both the 100- and 300-meter hurdles and was part of the winning 4x400-meter relay. Woolley won the 100 hurdles easily in 15.67 seconds, and she captured the 300 hurdles in 46.39 seconds, nearly a second better than Langley's Sara Hanson.
