Our track and field program just completed some facility improvements during this track season. We have added a new long jump/triple jump runway and landing pit and new discus and shot put throwing stations. Everyday we improve. The new facilities offer our athletes the opportunity to practice on similar surfaces to what they use in competition. We compete in the Class 1 District 6 meet on Saturday.
