SUPERIOR — With temperatures in the 40s, and strong winds making it feel even colder, Tuesday may not have been the ideal weather forecast for a track and field meet. But with the way the spring season has gone so far, teams will take any day they can get as long as they can compete.
The Thayer Central boys team battled the conditions and seven other Tribland teams, claiming the title in the Superior invite. The Titans racked up 183 points — 79 more points than second-place Minden. St. Cecilia finished with 68 points for third, while Sandy Creek (68) and Harvard (44) rounded out the top five.
TC head coach Bryan Solomon knew the weather presented an added physical challenge Tuesday, but his kids were up to it.
"Honestly, it was a cold day. It's been one of those things where we haven't had a lot of meets because of the weather, but just to get out and compete, that's what it's all about," Solomon said. "The kids, once they're out there running, it seems like when someone pulls up beside them, they kick it up to another gear. That's probably the thing that impresses me most with this group."
