Wednesday, April 22, 2009

SIKESTON -- The Sikeston boys and Dexter girls each won a five-team track meet at Sikeston Public Schools on Tuesday.

Sikeston easily won the boys side, scoring 142 points with Poplar Bluff coming in a distant second at 82.

Dexter slipped past Poplar Bluff on the girls side with the Lady Bearcats posting 109 points followed by the Lady Mules' 95. Sikeston finished third with 84 points.

"We got some things accomplished today, even though it was a little cool and windy and a little out of whack at times," said Sikeston head coach Terry Flannigan. "We had some kids get out and compete and shave a little time off and we had a few more qualify for (districts) in the jumping events so we will be taking more than just two in the districts."
