Track Season for the JH has ended with much hard work and sweat. The coaches (Austin Baxley and Robert Snyder) appreciate the kids that showed up everyday for after school practices and to the parents for allowing them to stay after school and work on their individual events and conditioning drills. We would also like to thank all of the coaches, teachers, administrators, Athletic Booster Club and board members for supporting our efforts throughout the year.
We are now heading into the off-season where champions are made and championships are won. Be Eagle Strong!
