The weather conditions were less than ideal, but the Lakota West Track & Field team hosted the first home track meet in 12 years on Friday night.  The pole vault events were cancelled due the misty rain, wind and cold weather, but all other events proceeded in what hopes to be an annual Lakota West event.

Both the men’s and women’s team team finished in second place between the four competing teams.  The boys lost to Sycamore by a mere 6.5 points while the girls lost to Centerville by 17 points.

Senior Logan Currington led the way for the Firebirds winning the 400 meter run, the high jump and as a member of the winning 4X400 meter relay team.
