Girls' track competes at home meet

A new season on a new track got underway on Saturday for the Fredericksburg High School varsity and junior varsity girls’ teams when they competed in the A.J. Loth Relays in FHS Stadium.

Saturday’s track and field meet did not follow a traditional format. Rather, the focus for the meet, according to head coach Dan Aldrich, was 13 relay events that included field event relays and running relays.

Aldrich explained that teams were scored only by their relay finish (first through fourth) with no point values. First-place medals were given to the relay winner of each race only.

“We started the season right as we expected and I am proud of how our teams competed on Saturday,” Aldrich said. “We have lots of work to do in the upcoming six weeks before district, but we are right on schedule with our athletes and are looking forward to traditional meets in the next few weeks as we continue to watch the improvements our kids are showing.”

After topping Mason, 57-36, on the road Tuesday, Feb. 17, Harper High School’s varsity boys’ basketball team finished the regular season as District 27-2A co-champions, tied with San Saba with 8-2 marks.

With a first round bye, Harper won’t see action until the area round later this week when it’ll face the winner of the Mumford-versus-Granger bi-district contest later this week.
