Track Team Struggles in First Meet, Looks Forward to Yellow Jacket Invitational
On Saturday, March 4, 2017, at the Larry Clark Invitational in Bainbridge, Georgia, the Syrupmakers track team suffered a disappointing loss. The team, which features many freshmen and sophomores just starting their track careers, scored a total of seven points and came in 14th out of 16 teams.
This Saturday, the team is hoping for big improvements at the Yellow Jacket Invitational, in Thomasville, Georgia. There is also a meet this Thursday for the freshmen and sophomores at the 18th Annual Chiles Freshmen-Sophomore Championships in Tallahassee, Florida.
Some of the stronger areas for this year's team are the distance run, triple and long jumps, and the 400- and 100- meter runs.
Below is the order of events for this weekend's Yellow Jacket Invitational in Thomasville, Georgia. So if you're nearby, come support our Cairo track team in Thomasville this Saturday.
