Finding dry ground in the third week of track practice was a bit of a challenge for the Terry High School track team after Monday’s spring snow storm. Runners took turns along a dry path on the Grandey school grounds for part of Tuesday’s practice. Leading is Caitlin Lantis, followed by Katelynn Mendenhall and Caty Morrison.
The Terry High School track season, which began meeting for practices March 17, is well underway and gearing up for their first meet of the season, Saturday, April 5 in Glendive for the Wibaux Invitational.
This year’s district meet will be held in Baker, May 15, followed by the divisional meet in Laurel on May 22. The state meet will be held in Great Falls May 30 and 31.
