|HHS track stays busy with 2 meets|

HHS track and field had a busy week, traveling to Wray Thursday, April 17 and to Akron Saturday, April 19.
Coach Sandra Rahe noted that the two meets gave the Dragons an opportunity to face some of the better athletes in 2A that the Holyoke kids might see again down the road.
Holyoke boys finished in fifth out of 15 spots with 54 points Thursday in Wray and the girls placed 13th out of 16 with 16 points.
