Great job kids!!! And all without any track. Let's go town and build a track for these kids so they have some place to practice . This towns cheapness is sad.

Congratulations to the kids and their coaches! They are a great group who work very hard with very little, but a lot of heart! They truly are the "Jamaican Bobsled Team" of Track & Field. They earned their championship as a team. They have many good athletes and a few standouts, but overall it is our depth as a team, in all of the events, that won us the title! I hope they receive the accolades that are deserved!
