Dealing with the absence of many teammates, our 7 girls and 6 boys came prepared to battle today against Tri-Central and both the boys and girls were able to ring the Titan Victory bell!

Nate Ferguson placed third in shot put (24′ 2.5″) as well as third in long jump (11’1″). It was definately a team effort that won this meet!
The girls had their work cut out for them today, missing some from key events that we didn’t have replacements for. They ended up on top 54-52.

The kids didn’t get very many personal records (PRs) today due to the cold and rainy conditions but they left everything on the track in order to get these wins. We needed everyone to contribute and today every single kid placed. The Middle school track team concludes their season at Eastern on Saturday at the MIC Invite.
