Track boys team is Class 1A region champions, girls 2nd overall region runner up
Here is a recap of last Thursday’s Class 1A Region meet from Calvary Christian in which the boys team captured first and the girls team finished in second. The top four in their respective events move on to the state tournament, which will be held Friday and Saturday at IMG Academy in Bradenton.
“To have both the boys and the girls finish where they did is a testament to their hard work all season,” BlueJackets coach Arron Prather said. “It is truly amazing to see each and every one of these athletes improve throughout the year the way they have. We have such a good mix of veterans and youth that the leaders have shown the way for the younger athletes and the younger ones have responded in a great way.”
