After Wednesday the boys and girls track teams were in unchartered territory. Both teams had some uncharateric mistakes and found themselves trailing in the District meet and with relay teams disqualified along with an individual suffering some bad luck the Elks had dug themselves a hole and with these certain points gone left themselves with little room for error going into Friday.
Champions respond to adversity and coach Somerlot rallied the teams and challenged everyone to go out and compete as hard they can and have no regrets. The teams responded like true champions and the boys rallied for a 2 point win for their 11th straight District Title and the girls won running away from the field for their 5th straight District Title.
