Bluejay teams host meet

On Thursday, May 5, the Bluejay track teams battled the windy and wet conditions, but got to stay home and compete in the Sabetha Invitational Track Meet.

The boys placed fifth as a team with 53 points with 10 total teams competing. The Lady Jays earned fourth place with 74 points.

“We had another good meet with several kids again getting personal bests on the season, and their career. Even though we finished the meet in the rain, everyone was happy and thankful to get it completed,” said Head Coach David Remmers. “Our kids did a great job supporting their teammates and helping keep the meet moving. We are looking forward to hosting the League meet this Thursday and are getting our kids geared up to perform to the best of their abilities.”
