Tuesday, April 19, 2005

The Sioux Central girls track and field team just keeps rolling.

The Rebels won the small school portion of the Spencer Invitational here Friday, edging South O'Brien 143-140. HMS was third with 68 points. Alta, competing with several injuries, took sixth with 50 points.

The meet was stopped due to lightning with just the 4x400 relay left, according to Sioux Central coach Ken Rachuy.
