Congratulations to the boys track team, as they continue their undefeated season with a victory over both Mercy and Ross with the scores of 69-45 and 94-18. This brings their season to a record of 3-0 in our league and 4-0 overall. I am very excited with the start our team has had this season! Since the first day of practice, our boys have attacked the season with a level of competitiveness and determination, that I can only describe as “inspiring.” This would not be possible without the hard work from every single athlete on the team, and as a coach I couldn’t ask for more. Congratulations once again, it was well deserved boys! Hard work pays off!
