The high school track and field teams continued their success this past Thursday at the West Holt Invitational.  In the team race the boys came home with a runner up finish while the girls were able to claim third place.  “I was pleased with the way we performed after the kids had a long lay off from school”, Coach Derry Trampe noted.  “It is a little tough to prepare when you are not in your usual routine, and I thought we had some great performances on the day.  However, like any other meet, there are some things we could do to be better. We just need to stay focused and work on the little things from now through districts.”  The boys scored 68 points to finish as the runner-up team in the meet.  Battle Creek ran away with the team title scoring 192 points.  Ainsworth finished in third with a total of 62 points.  Rounding out the team scoring were: Burwell (57), North Central (54), West Holt (50), Valentine (25), Sandhills-Thedford (11), Stuart (5), and Battle Creek JV (3).

The girls finished the meet with 80 points to claim third place and were just 2 points behind runner-up Valentine (82).  Battle Creek also claimed the top spot in the team race with 108 points.  Rounding out the team scoring were: Ainsworth (68), West Holt (57), North Central (50), Sandhills/Thedford (44), Stuart (22), and Burwell (16).
