The track at Sleepy Eye High School was busy Monday afternoon and evening, April 15, when the River Valley track team hosted four other teams at the first home meet of the season. Despite the snow that fell last week, the track and infield were in fine shape. The weather also cooperated—warm enough and no wind.
“It was a great first home meet,” said Coach Courtney Mickelson. “We again had athletes reach their PRs and succeed. I am proud of how hard these athletes are working.”
