SIKESTON -- The Sikeston Junior High track and field teams split a dual meet with Cape Central on Monday, with the girls winning 66-58 while the boys dropped a 70-53 decision.

"I am very happy with the way the girls performed yesterday and excited for the potential they have for a good season." said Sikeston coach Jon Johnson. "We have a few girls that get a late start after volleyball season that will only help us down the road.

"The boys fought hard, we just had a couple of events we got swept in and that was the difference in the score. It was our first meet and we have a little work to do as far as coaches getting the kids in the right spots where they can be successful and kids getting in track shape. We will get better and continue working on our goal of winning Conference."

While no individual results were available, Johnson praised his distance runners.

"The one thing we have this year that we haven't had is a number of good distance runners(both boys and girls)...if we can keep getting points out of them we will be fine," Johnson said.
