Chilly winds, and persistent drizzle made for a less than ideal day for track and field athletes to compete at last Wednesday’s Meridian Mustang Invite held on the Friend High School track.
Drizzly and windy conditions lasted through the invite making it more challenging to run, throw, and jump in each event.
Points were tough to come by for Meridian, as the Lady Mustangs and Mustangs both finished in ninth place in their respective team races each scoring 24 points.
Giltner won the girls team championship in the 11-team invite racking up 94 points, while Hampton was second with 74 points.
McCool Junction claimed the team title for the boys with 95 points with High Plains runner-up scoring 89 points.
The top finish in the meet for the Lady Mustangs was their 400-meter relay placing second behind Giltner in a time of 55.90.
