A short rain delay with thunder in the distance didn’t deter the seven teams from competing in the Moorefield Track & Field Meet last Thursday with the Yellow Jackets finishing second overall and the East Hardy Girls Track team taking the gold.
The Lady Cougars won the overall meet with 131 points, followed by Petersburg (120.5), Moorefield (82), Union (80), Pendleton County (73.5), and Paw Paw (1).
On the boys side, Pendleton County took top honors with 126.33 points, followed by Moorefield (105.33), East Hardy (81.33), Petersburg (79), Timber Ridge (76), Union (20), and Paw Paw (16).
After the okay was given to be down on the track, the athletes did some warmup drills for the meet.
