Just wanted to make everyone aware that the CHEQ Boys and Girls Track teams have repeated their Conference Championships! The boys won very handily and the Girls final came down to the final race the 4x400. CHEQ had a 5pt lead on Athens going into the last event. Athens who has a state caliber team in this event was going to take first thus getting 10 team points and they did. We knew going into the last event we needed to take 3rd place to clinch the championship and the girls got it done for 6 team points giving CHEQ a 1pt advantage over Athens in the final standings. Totally awesome!
So our school now has won 15 Marawood Conferecne Championships since we joined it in all sports. Only Edgar has more with 20. 14 schools represent the Marawood, 15 if you include Tomahawk who is football only.
Let's now all root for the Softball and Basball teams to finish on a high note as they try do the same thing. I have been studying all the conference teams and thought we could go 4 for 4 in conference championships this spring. It's still within reach. Coming into tonight the baseball team was tied for 1st and the girls softball was in 1st. And I know Golf doesnt compete in the Marawood but they have been State the past 2 years including a 5th place finish at State last year.
