“Both boys and girls teams did an awesome job this year,” said Karen Green, head coach at Potts Camp. “Both teams showed how hard they had worked by finishing first in division and region; then the boys finished first in north while the girls finished in second.
“We lost a lot of events in the north meet, which put us short competing at state, so to come out with a second-place finish in each was absolutely great. We can’t wait to have our new track completed so that we can actually practice on a track every day.
“Thanks to all who helped us have a successful season and to all those who helped run the division, region and north meets that we hosted in Byhalia. A special thank you goes to Byhalia High School for the use of their facility.”
