Congratulations to the track team on an outstanding performance Saturday at the Irish Relays. The boy's team finished 2nd overall with a great team effort.  In a meet where every point counted, the Irish beat the 3rd place team by just 2 points and the 4th place team by 4. 

 Championships were won by Kevin King in the long jump, Jonathan Ward in the high jump, and the 800 relay team of Kevin, Jonathan, Tre Speed, and Ariez Andrew.  On the girl's side, Faith Provost won the 1600 meter run, and later anchored the sprint medley to second place.  Members of that relay included Jaida Carson, Mia Smith, and Carolina Quintero.  Details of the meet will be in the trophy case later today.

 Thanks to all the faculty, staff, and students who worked to make the Irish Relays a success.
