May 18 – Track & Field – NCS Tri-Valley Area Championships

The varsity boys and girls track and field teams competed in the NCS Tri-Valley Area Championships held at Granada HS in Livermore.  Athletes finishing in the top 7 will compete next Friday at the NCS Meet of Champions at UC Berkeley.  The Boys team finished 6th, ahead of all other DFAL teams.  All of the teams that finished ahead of the Boys are much larger schools,  so this is a great accomplishment for the Boys team.
