3/21 Track - Bridgeport
Manson Track Team Compete at Bridgeport
Coach Kurt Toolson reports
The Manson Track team competed in their first regular season meet of the year on Thursday in Bridgeport. There were 10 schools there and the boys placed 3rd overall and the girls 5th.
Manson was led by their throwing group; Alex Vanderholm won both the shot put and discus, Kelly McClellan, Willy Picton, and Raechel Vanderholm also placed in the top 5 in both events.
The running performances were a little more uneven. The relay teams struggled with exchanges after having minimal practice prior to the meet. We had a pretty tough week of practices so the kids were running on tired legs that were not conducive to producing their best efforts. Hopefully the hard work will pay off down the line as we get into our more important meets later on in the year.
Our next meet is Saturday, March 30 in Oroville.
