VHS Coach Mandy Godbee said, “It is always critical for young athletes to face off with some tough competition before we head into the post season. This meet provided the competition they needed. I was very impressed to see how they responded and fought their way through every event. Not everyone was pleased with their results, but we now know that we can always improve and we can target the areas that need improving. Now we go to work again with our sights on the post season.”

The Vidalia High School Track team hits the road again, April 1, for a meet in West Laurens.
