The McNary High School varsity track and field teams made the best of bad weather last weekend at the Sandy High School Invitational Track and Field meet.
The boys took third place by half a point and the girls took fifth place for a combined finish of third overall in the tournament that drew 16 teams.
“It was miserable day to be out running track, but no one complained. They went out there and did their jobs and saw good results because of it,” said Frank Gauntz, McNary head coach.
Among the top performers at the meet was Celt Garrett Hittner who took part in six events and achieved the highest individual score of any boy at the meet.
“I finally figured out my starts after three years. Coach (Kelly) Borreson makes us work hard and it paid off,” Hittner said.
