CSMS girls track are 8th grade conference champs.
The Cedar Springs Middle School Girls 400 relay team set a school record.
The girls track team completed an amazing season with a 5-1 record, with the one loss only being by two points. Even though practice started inside because of the weather, everyone of these girls were able to rise above and run, jump and throw their best.
Two school records were broken—Tara Tepin in the 200m dash and the 400 relay of Tara Tepin, Maddie Vandusen, Bailey Lachniet and Sienna Wight.
The 7th grade track team finished 5th at their conference meet, with very few points separating 2nd through 6th place.
For the second year in a row, the 8th grade track team finished as conference champions, making school history as the first time a girls track team has won back to back championships.
Coaches Weiler and Weiler are very proud of how all these girls ran, competed and the sportsmanship they portrayed. “It was an honor to coach this group of young ladies,” they said.
