Good Luck at Valley

The Ridgeview boys and Bakersfield girls are sending quite a few athletes to the valley meet and have shots at the overall team titles if everything falls into place. I am certain that it will come down to the 4 x 400s as it should be.

Ridgeview boys have the best time in the valley and their rival for the team title is Buchanan who has the second best time. So try and get to Buchanan on Saturday May 23rd and root for all of our local athletes and do not leave early!

Four for Four with the Four by Four

With the Drillers win in the 1600 relay, Wandick (12) won four events at the South Area meet. In the 100, 200 and the relays Wandick and her teammates have good chance of placing in the top three at valley and qualifying for state in all four events.
