POINT LOOKOUT, MO. —The School of the Ozarks girls and boys track teams both placed first in the Class 1, District 3 Track and Field Meet at the Bob Osburn Track on the College of the Ozarks campus on Saturday, May 5, 2018.

Sixteen teams competed in the meet.

Thirteen boys and 14 girls advanced to the Class 1, Section 2 Track and Field Meet on Saturday, May 12, in Carl Junction, Missouri. The top four finishers in each event will advance to the Class 1 Missouri State Track and Field Meet May 18-19 in Jefferson City, Missouri. The S of O girls have been district champions three years in a row.

“The double district championship was definitely earned by our athletes,” said David Lundeen, S of O sixth grade assistant professor and cross country and track coach. “They have trained hard under a top-notch group of coaches throughout the spring. They have encouraged and challenged one another to compete well and for God’s glory, which they showed on Saturday. The coaches expect those same attributes from our Patriots at both sectionals and state.”

“We want our students to pursue excellence but predominately as a platform from which to share the Gospel,” said Brad Dolloff, dean of School of the Ozarks. “It’s exciting for both our boys and girls track teams to be district champions again, but perhaps just as exciting to see senior Nate Brown gather all teams in the 4 x 400 relay together and lead them in prayer.”
