The Miami Trace Panthers opened the 2018 track and field season hosting a tri-match featuring two former SCOL opponents, Wilmington and Clinton-Massie, Tuesday, March 27.

Wilmington won a close girls’ competition with 57.5 points. Clinton-Massie was second with 55.5 points and Miami Trace scored 50 points.

In the boys’ meet, Clinton-Massie won with 65 team points.

Wilmington scored 61 points and the Panthers had 49 points.

“I thought we came out and saw some positive things from both the boys and girls track and field teams (Tuesday),” Miami Trace head coach Brent Noes said. “We try to come out and have a little fun in this first meet of the year where we let athletes pick and choose many of their events.

“We had some pleasant surprises and we also found things that need to be worked on,” Noes said. “Overall though, for a rainy night I thought we came out and competed really well. We now have a base-line for where we are at; so we know what we have to do to get us to where we want to be at the end of the season.”

For the Lady Panthers, there were seven first place finishes recorded.

Macy Creamer won the 100-meter dash in 13.7. Creamer also won the long jump with a leap of 14’ 9 1/2”.
