Stevens won with 3,323 points and the second place finisher scored 2,596, nearly 800 points lower.
Stevens was champion in this event last year in the 15-16-year-old division.
Jessica Swick competed in the 13- and 14-year-old division and finished fourth in the decathalon. The decathalon includes the 100m dash, shot put, high jump, long jump and 800m run. Swick scored 1,362 points, qualifying her for the Region 5 meet.
South Webster incoming junior Aarick Wiseman attempted but could not finish the pentathalon. The event includes 10 events over two days and Wiseman got through the first day, specifically six events, before withdrawing because of soreness from the high jump on day one. Wiseman was in second place when he withdrew.
“I'm really proud of all three of them,” said their coach, Glenn Queen. “They've worked hard and they competed like seasoned veterans, and one of them is but the other two it was their first time.”
