High School Girls, Junior High Girls and Boys are conference champs, High School Boys take fourth

The WEMO Conference track meet was held Monday, May 5 at Adrian. The Adrian Blackhawks girls took 1st place and the boys came in 4th. One highlight of the meet was the girls 4x400 relay breaking the school record with a time of 4:13.13. 4X400m team: Brenna Adkins, Lauren Shipley, Cheyenne Smith and Jessica Willerton.

“I was really hoping for a better team performance today” commented Boys Track Coach Matt Cochran. “Overall we finished fourth. I was thinking we should be able to get third. We just didn’t all perform at our best today. That can’t happen at a conference or district meet. Unfortunately that cost us third place. I don’t think we could have beaten Midway or Osceola anyway. We have to look forward to districts now and we have to perform at our best or our season will be over. I want to say congratulations to Midway for being WEMO Conference Champs in a very close race with Osceola.”
