In the middle school meet March 26 at Green County, the girls' team scored 88 points to finish third, while the boys' team was sixth with 38 points.
"Our girls team did a great job overall," Head Coach Keith Brown said. "We left a few points on the track due to an injury to Chelsey Wright, and a couple of blunders on not checking in on time, but overall we were right where we need to be."  
Brown said the boys team has room for improvement.
"Out of the 30 kids we took over, half had never run in a meet before, so the future looks bright," he said.
