Watertown Invitational - Watertown HS

On Friday night the JMM Track & Field competed in its first varsity invitational of the outdoor season at the Watertown Invitational at Watertown High School. The sun was out and the temperatures were decent for an April evening. The competitors battle strong winds at the beginning of the meet that settled down for a perfect night as the meet carried on. Both boys & girls teams took steps forward tonight with 13 athletes setting lifetime PRs and even more athletes achieving season's bests. We look to take the positives from this meet and continue to build into our busy season in the coming weeks. As athletes we ask each and every one of you to utilize every day to make yourself and your teammates better.
