This was a quality meet. I believe there four 4A schools there and the rest were 3A-2A levels. The lower division teams had some unbelievable talent, Coach Jeff Geist said.
Krista Bacon had another solid day in the hurdles for us, Geist said.
We did see some improvement from several kids but we need the weather to cooperate so we can get some quality practice time in, Geist concluded.
The next varsity action will be Friday as they host the Abilene Invitational at Ken Russell Track.
