For the McDowell track team, all of our hard work builds up for the biggest meet of the year, which is Mid State League or MSL for short. MSL is when all 9 teams in the area come together and compete for the title of MSL champion. This was the last meet of the year, so the team put forth their best effort last night and it all payed off. The McDowell girls team placed 4th out of 9 teams and the boys places 9th. A couple of highlights from MSL included some phenomenal performances including 8th grader Allyson Cotton placing 1st in ALL of her events and tieing the school record in the pole vault, 8th grader Emma Conley coming back from an injury and throwing the shot put and discus and she placed high in both events even after being hurt for a while, 8th grader Riley Shultz placing 1st in the high jump and 3rd in the 400 meter dash, myself, 7th grader Annie Karshner placed 1st in both of my events which is the shot put and discus and was only 5 inches away from breaking the school record in the shot put, and our 4×400 relay teams running their hearts out in the pouring rain last night. We ended the season with a lot to be proud of! Go Braves!
