Sunny Skies Shine Saturday On MWL Middle School Track Meet
Sun and smiles, both, were in abundance last Saturday, April 23, at Aaron and Marie Jones Track. McKenzie Community Track and Field and McKenzie High School volunteers worked together to host the MWL (Mt. West League) Middle School Meet, which featured fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students representing Alsea, Crow, Mapleton, McKenzie, Mohawk, and Siletz Valley schools.
For the fourth time this Spring, the weather cooperated beautifully, but, shhh! Don't let the news slip out! Two meets remain on schedule and here's hoping the string of excellent weather continues. Saturday, May 7, the MCTF will host the MWL Middle School District Meet. The last meet this season at the Aaron and Marie Jones Track will be the 1A-SD2 Special District 2 Championships and that is scheduled for Friday, May 13.
