The high school track team has had busy few days. We competed in the Class 2 District 6 meet on Saturday in Higginsville and the again yesterday at the first Ozark Mountain Conference meet at Southwest Baptist University. Over the course of the 3 days we saw some good times, jumps and throws with a lot of PRs and multiple advancing on to Sectionals! As we were competing at conference Monday you could tell our kids were worn out having been at a meet on Saturday for 14 hours in the sun and only one day of rest. But there were many who were able to push through and still compete well!See attached for results. For districts, the top 4 earn All-District and move on to Sectionals which will be this Saturday, May 11 in Clinton. For conference, top 3 in each event medaled and earned All-Conference.
