VARSITY TRACK & FIELD  

4/16-17  at Nick Finnegan Invitational
Girls 7th place • Boys 3rd place

Coach Scott Holland: This meet gave us a good look at our competition for the SPC South Zone Meet on May 1.  Weather conditions were constantly changing from light rain, winds that gusted off and on, plus a 15-minute lightning delay.  Despite the conditions, we competed well–17 PRs set, and we are looking forward to getting back to work to improve for the South Zone Meet.
