Members of the North Sevier track team participated in the BYU Invitational this past weekend and Coach Terron Barney said the meet was by fat the best one for their team so far this season.
“The kids who attended this had to meet a minimum qualification standard in their events in order to compete. We had 23 kids who met those standards. There were 94 teams who competed in the event ranging from 1A to 6A. In addition to the several schools from Utah, every surrounding state was represented as well,” he said. “Our kids stepped up to the competition and represented our school and community very well. We saw even more of our athletes qualify for the state meet, some even placed very high in the meet and nearly every athlete and relay set a new PR by a big mark and time.”
