Hyde-Hebron Track Meet – 5/4/11
The men’s and women’s track teams had their second home meet of the spring vs. Hebron Academy on Wednesday, May 4rd. The weather for this rare dual meet was cool, overcast with periods of drizzle. Everyone on the track program was able to compete with a number of athletes achieving their season best performances. Both the boys and girls teams won… the boys in a run-away… the girls by a very narrow five-point margin.
