Special recognition goes to the shuttle hurdle relay team of Collin Seymour, Landon Kraus, Brad Ware and Jacob Osterberger for bringing the thunder last night. The team finished first place and broke the school record in the event with a time of 59.41 seconds. Their lightning quick performance set off the severe weather sirens and resulted in a temporary postponement of the meet. ​Great job guys!
