Riverdale Track Team members did a great job at this week’s South A Meet. Four of the team members advanced to the State/Overall Meet at Jackson Prep on Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1. At South A this week, 8th grader Jadyn King placed 2nd in discus and 7th grader Makayla Pickett placed 4th in discus. Both of these young ladies competed with varsity, and both of them advanced to the field events final on Friday. In track events, senior Brennan Edie placed 2nd in the 200 meter dash and 4th in the 100 meter dash. Junior Rylee Kate Woodard placed 4th in the 800 meter run. They both advanced to the track events final on Saturday. Good luck to all of our competitors!
