The Tigers girl’s track team put forth a great effort and came away with their third straight Prairie Conference championship. It was a total team effort as the girls cheered and encouraged each other to their best times and distances of the year. While it is true that many of these girls are blessed with great running and jumping ability, they do put in many hours of hard work to accomplish these goals. They are to be commended for being at their best when it really counts.
