Partial results.

100-yard dash: 1st - Martha Hudson (Twin City)

440-yard relay: 1st - Twin City

The Leader-Tribune article about the state track meet credits Twin City's Hudson as Mary Hudson, but with a note in the May 2, 1957, write-up that "Hudson has run in many national meets such as the Tuskegee Relays and the Women's AAU Relays," no doubt that this is indeed Martha Hudson.
