On Saturday, April 22 the Fairbury track teams headed to York to compete in the Jerry Yowell Invitational. The invite consisted eight teams, with most teams in Class B. The boys team had a rough day at the invitational and finished in eighth place.
“Honestly we didn’t finish where I wanted to. We were last place and that’s not where we want to be. We have always done a good job in field events, but we have got to get better on the track,” head boys track coach Derek Garfield said.
On the girls side the Lady Jeffs also finished in eighth place in the team competition. Jaelle Johnson ’20 scored some major points as she finished runner up in the high jump.
The next competition for the Fairbury track teams is Saturday, April 29 as they travel to Centennial to compete in the Southern Nebraska Conference track meet.
