Axtell’s boys captured their fifth consecutive FKC Track and Field championship and the Lady Cats also won the team title on April 26 at Elwood. Ten schools comprise the conference.
The Cat boys ran (and jumped) away with the league crown scoring 161 points to finish ahead of Overton (74), Elwood (57), Loomis (57) and Wilcox-Hildreth (53). But for an unfortunate DQ in the 4 x 100 relay, the Falcons would have come in third.
The Lady Cats’ 90 points in the running events, including winning the final two relays, overcame Elm Creek’s 86 field event points as Axtell squeaked by the Lady Buffs 126-125 in the final tally. Pleasanton (74), Elwood (41.5) and Wilcox-Hildreth (39.5) were next in line.
