The Week Ahead: Oxford Invite Edition

Both the Girls and Boys teams faced-off against Rochester Adams last week. Despite many great individual efforts and team-first attitude, they were not able to overcome a very tough opponent. The Girls team overall record stands at 0-3, the Boys at 1-2. Both teams will have a chance to get back into the winners column when they face-off against Rochester at Rochester High School on Wednesday, April 24th. Field events begin at 4:30p followed by running events at 4:50p.
