This is what Xavier Bridges, a staff member from North Ridge Crossing and Western Heights, had to say about this year’s track meet:
I am very proud to say that the meet this year went smoothly. The kids, I know, had a great time once again as well as the staff members that were able to help out. This meet was held at Austin East Magnet High School at 5:45 pm on Monday May 9th 2016. The participation level throughout our Clubs grew tremendously from the 2015 meet. Each Club was allowed to have up to 25 members participate, and most Clubs listed were pretty close to that number on the day of the meet.
The 2015 meet was won by Haslam Family University by a total of three points over North Ridge Crossing. This year’s leader, Halls/Powell, won by a long shot. There was 25 points between them and Haslam Family University which finished second this year.
We are very thankful that US Cellular was able to purchase shirts for each Club involved. Those shirts were color coordinated by the Clubs, and it was a beautiful sight to see with them sitting in the stands at the meet. US Cellular paid, not only the shirts, but also the waters, snacks, and juice and provided volunteers for the meet. I hope that they are able to support us for the upcoming years, they came willing and ready to work up to as well as on the day of the meet.
The following Clubs were able to participate…
- Haslam Family University
- North Ridge Crossing
- Western Heights
- Walter P Taylor
