HOLIDAY INVITATIONAL RECAP
Boys Indoor Track:
The Boys Indoor Track team traveled to the Birmingham Crossplex on Saturday to compete in the 2017 Holiday Invitational. The Huskies had an outstanding performance as they finished 3rd out of 25 teams. Coach Davis Dobbs said, "The Boys coming in 3rd is a great start to the season, especially with the kids having a snow day Friday. We had all relays and four individuals on the podium, plus Jake Diggs placing 4th in the nation in the 400 Meter was a great spark also. The pieces are starting to come together for a big run to State after Christmas." Hewitt will be off until after the Christmas break. They will return to action on January 5 as they compete in the Icebreaker Invitational.
