Mt. Ararat Track Meet – 5/09/12
The men’s and women’s track teams travelled fifteen minutes to local Mt. Ararat High School for their fifth track meet of the season. This large competitive meet of over 220 athletes featured teams from Mt. Ararat high school, Leavitt high school, Nokomis high school, and Boothbay Regional high school. The rain we have been having this week let up for the meet and returned as the very last relay ended. I was overall pleased with our performances. A number of students experienced a PR (personal record) on the season. The boys placed 2nd of five scoring teams while the girls placed 5th overall.
