THS teams up in relay meet
The Hatchet track teams both placed fourth in Tuesday’s 10th Annual T-Bird Relays.
“As much as it would have been nice to be able to compete outdoors, a meet of any type and quality was needed for our top athletes,” THS coach John Zuelsdorf said. “In spite of our heightened levels of training intensities, our athletes responded with some of their top efforts of the season. We felt that a ‘team-oriented’ relay meet may have inspired our athletes with the motivation needed to achieve at these levels.”
