On Friday, April 6, the Miami Trace track and field teams traveled to Waynesville to participate in their “Old KTC” Invitational.

The competition was tough and so was the weather. Athletes competed in the wind, rain, sleet, and snow.

“We will continue to work on overcoming adversity and focusing only on what we can control, which is ourselves,” Miami Trace head coach Brent Noes said. “Whatever Mother Nature gives us we will just have to learn to deal with it.

“We saw a lot of positive things tonight from some newcomers and also from some of our veterans,” Noes said.

“There were several 2017 State placers on the opposing teams who competed in the meet, so it was good for our athletes to see this caliber of competition,” Noes said. “Both our boys and girls teams realized that they could compete with those type of athletes.

“The girls finished fourth out of 13 teams and had a very strong showing,” Noes said. “The boys also had a strong finish placing third out of 14 teams.”

Oakwood won the girls meet with 131.5 team points.

Mason was second with 126 points, followed by Waynesville with 87.5 points and Miami Trace with 80 points.

Twin Valley South was fifth with 76 points.
