Delayed two weeks because of the inclement spring weather, West Union Junior High played host to their annual Invitational Track Meet on Saturday, April 21. The meet included seven teams besides the host Dragons, a number that was lower than expected with conflicts caused by the two-week delay sending teams to other meets in the area.
The West Union squads performed admirably on the day, with the girls team placing third overall and the boys second in the team standings. The Dragons also had some individual champions at the meet, including: Chris Schulz in the Boys Long Jump, Evan Edmisten in the Boys 100 Meter Hurdles, Adelyn Shupert in the Girls 400 Meter Dash, and the WUJH Girls 4 x 2oo Relay team.
