On March 25, the Cadets track teamed made their journey to Indiana University Bloomington to fight for the top places at the indoor track state championship. Not only did the boys team claim first overall in the 1-3A IHSAA Indoor State Championship, but they also managed to score 100 points and set two new records. The girls were also well represented and placed high in their events.
Congratulations to both teams and there’s only room for improvement as the outdoor season approaches at a rapid pace. Go out and support you Cadet track team!
