GRAETTINGER - Last weeks rainy cold weather conditions played havoc with area track and field squads, including the Titans of Graettinger-Terril/Ruth-ven-Ayrshire. However, the Titans were able to find a meet to run in on Friday to get back on the track. GT/RA?was able to be fitted into the Ross Samuelson Relays at South Central Calhoun on Friday.
"We ran against some very good competition and performed very well as a team," noted Titan Head Coach David Peterson. "We also continued lowering our individual times. As a team we placed fifth out of 10 teams and we were missing two runners so that hurt our score somewhat."
