UNION COUNTY — The Union County High School Girls Track Team finished first and the Boys Team third in a meet against five other teams this past Friday which also saw most members of the UCHS team set Personal Records (PR) and Season’s Bests (SB).

In a statement released Monday, Union County High School Track Coach Kalan Rogers said that Saturday’s meet at Southside Christian School saw the UCHS team again perform well, both as a team and as inviduals. Rogers pointed out that the team had additonal time to prepare for Friday’s meet because meet a scheduled for Tuesday had been canceled due to the weather.

He said the extra preparation made the difference on Friday.

“Our meet was canceled on Tuesday which gave us an extra day to prepare for the meet at Southside Christian School,” Rogers said. “With no doubt in my mind, that extra day helped us because we performed well at the meet.

“Our girls won the meet,” he said. “I had no clue until I got home and analyzed the results. The guys finished in third place. Our injury list is decreasing and key starters are returning. Over 75 percent of the athletes hit their Personal Record in Friday’s meet. We are going to continue to work hard and give 110 percent in all we do.”
