ST. JOHNSBURY–North Country's track and field team made their way down I-91 to go head-to-head with the St. Johnsbury Hilltoppers on a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon.
The Hilltoppers and Falcons were the only two teams at the track on a busy sports Wednesday, and according to coach Lonnie Wade, it was a great chance to get the young Falcons acclimated to the sport.
"The meet went well overall," said Wade. "We are young so it was good to get many of the kids some experience."
The strongest performance of the day went to Falcons female throwing team, as they swept the top three spots in the discuss and shot-put.
Jenna Moss took first place, with Crystal Moss in second, and Cassidy Webster in third in the discus, with Cassidy and Jenna going 1-2 in the shot, with Ellie Searles in third.
