The Morgan County Middle School boys track squad got their first team win of the year while posting several first place individual performances in the meet. The Dogs came out on top with a score of 57 to their opponents 42 and 35 points.
Head Coach Marvin Mathis said, “With so much rain last week which forced us to call off or practice indoors, the Morgan County Middle School Track and Field boys did great. We have a bunch of first year athletes who were quite nervous for their first track meet of the season. The kids love to race, jump, and throw. This is a very exciting group of kids who love to compete. The boys made a couple of mistakes so there is always room for improvement, but there were a lot of highlights for the day.”
