Woods High track team competed at the TCAL State Championships

Our Woods High track team competed at the TCAL State Championships May 1st and 2nd at Allen Academy in Bryan, Texas.

Our 4x200 meter relay team placed 5th overall. The same team placed 7th in the 4x100 relay.

Wildcats also placed 8th and 12th in the discus, 7th in the shot put and an 8th place finish in the 800 meter run.

We made it to finals in almost every event we competed in, and we did extremely well. I am very proud of how hard this group competed, and I've enjoyed seeing their progress this season. Great job Wildcats!
