The track team traveled to Provo High School to participate in the Region 8 Championships this past Wednesday & Thursday. The meet started at 3pm on Wednesday, but due to some timer issues the 1600m didn’t start until 3:20. The conditions for this race were ideal, with temperatures in the mid 60’s and a slight breeze. It wasn’t until after the 1600m, and many timer issues during the Hurdles races (which included 2 races being re-run) that a strong wind arose from the north. This wind continued throughout the remainder of Wednesdays meet. Despite this, there were some great performances from our athletes.
