Both teams faced the top competition in the country over spring break. The Men’s team pulled away from the five day stretch of duels with a 4-3 team record. The Women’s team is still undefeated, with a 8-0 team record after beating three different squads by 5-4. Sophomores Shannon Beckett and Erika Castillo-Lopez have yet to drop a match.
Both Men’s and Women’s track teams had strong finishes at the Razorback Invitational hosted by the University of Arkansas. National qualifiers include Sophomore Mark Sitek in the 200m, Sophomore Hayes Grissom and Freshman Derek Webb in the javelin, and sophomore Caniggia Raynor in the hammer and discus. The women’s team had freshmen Maddi Osmundson qualify for javelin, freshman Jalisa Brice qualify for the triple jump and sophomores Monet Jackson and Mikayla Vette qualify in the hammer.
The Cavs split doubleheaders with both Highland CC and Neosho County, on March 20 and March 29 respectively. Their season record stands at 12-11 while the team is 8-6 in conference play. If the weather cooperates, the squad will host five of their next six doubleheaders.
The Lady Cavs have started the season strong with a 15-9 record. The squad is also hoping home field will help them continue to improve on their 8-4 conference record. The team will host their next eight games.
