COLUMBUS GROVE — Lincolnview track and field team competed at the Columbus Grove invitational on Friday night. The boys outlasted host Columbus Grove and Division II Anna to take home the championship trophy scoring 130 points. The boys were able to place in 15 of the 17 events and were able to take two places in seven of the events. The boys season record is now 17-0. The girls had a solid fifth place finish, just a few points behind 4th place. The girls placed in eight of the 17 events. The girls season record is now 13-4.

“This was a great early test for both teams," said Lincolnview head coach Matt Langdon. "It was our first invitational and we were excited for the competition. The boys were able to compete at a high level and win a very competitive meet. There were several areas that we need to improve, but this was certainly an exciting start. The girl’s team was able to score more points than we originally anticipated and place very high. I was proud of how we competed, but I was also proud of our attention to details and our sportsmanship though out the competition. It is something that we are intentionally trying to focus on.”
