Track & Field: Eagles travel to Saline twice for dual-meet and May Day Showcase

The Skyline varsity track team traveled to Saline twice this past week. On Tuesday, the Eagles competed in a dual meet with Saline. The Hornets then hosted seven teams on Saturday for the May Day Showcase.

He then ran a 52.0 anchor leg in the 4×400.
On the women’s side, the top scorer was senior Felicity Sorensen, with a first place finish in the high jump (4’10”) and a second place finish in the 100 meter hurdles (18.67). Other highlights were Lydia Cocciolone’s second place finish in the 3200 (12:36.71) and Marei Launderberg’s second place finish in the discus (70’05`’).
