On Tuesday, April 13th Zion participated at the Alma Track Invite. Zion had a great showing!
Both teams performed so well!
The girl's team placed 3rd overall out of 12 teams! Scoring 57 points and falling short of the 2nd place trophy by 3 points.
Keep in mind our Zion team is made up of primarily 6th graders who are competing against 7th and 8th grade students.
Attached you will find the results with times and distance. You can also go to athletic.net and search Zion Lutheran Kearney and find results for all meets and state rankings.
