Remarks from coach John Montgomery:

The MHS Track and Field team had their first competition of the year on Thursday, March 28, in Moundridge.  The McPherson County Early Season Invitational is a great opportunity for all McPherson County T&F athletes to get a start to their track season.  This is one of the few events during the year where all of our athletes in the county are able to be showcased in one location.  Medals are awarded for the Top 3 finishers in each event, however team scores are not kept.  There truly is a tremendous amount of talent all across the county.  This should be a special season.

Their next meet will be Friday, April 5 for an invitational at Pratt.
