Sectional/State Newsletter

As we entered Sectional 2017, we were a team with uncertainty and at the end, there were tears and smiles. While we all didn't make it to the "Big Dance", many of you laid it on the line in the attempt. The list of PR's below begin to sum up the effort. Together, we were able to finish 3rd as a team. Perhaps how we finished is a sign of things to come. The girls in the 4 X 400 finally laid it on the line and finsihed 5 seconds faster than they previously had. Maybe that's something to build upon?

Congratulations to our State 2017 Qualifiers:
