Bearcat Classic
The Tigers competed in the Bearcat Classic Tuesday, April 26 at the Southern Baptist University in Bolivar.
“It was a beautiful day for our kids to run,” said Coach Aaron Allen. “It was by far the biggest meet and the best weather we’ve had. Class 1, Class 2, Class 3 and one Class 5 schools were in attendance. When a meet is this big, the points are dispersed a little more. Overall, our kids did a great job and I am super proud of them. They are really starting to become a good team, good teammates, and better at their events.”
