SUBJECT: S OF O GIRLS TAKE FIRST PLACE IN TRACK MEET
By: Haley Jones
School of the Ozarks Girls Track Team won first place overall Monday, April 15, at the Nixa Invitational JV Girls Track Meet.
Out of the seven girls on the track team, six of the girls (all freshman) competed.
Rachel Snyder, School of the Ozarks high school freshman, took first place in the high hurdles, 300 meter hurdles and triple jump. Snyder placed third in the high jump, as well.
The School of the Ozarks Boys Track Team competed in the meet and placed eighth overall.
“Both our boys and girls track teams have put in a tremendous amount of work this year,” Headmaster Brad Dolloff said. “Accumulating a lot of team points is difficult for our girls since we only have six freshmen and one junior competing. It’s exciting to see these six freshman girls go to a big meet with a lot of larger schools and come home with a victory. We’re extremely proud of them.”
School of the Ozarks is a college preparatory lab school for grades 9-12 operated by College of the Ozarks. The S of O vision mirrors the College’s vision “to develop citizens of Christ-like character, who are well-educated, hard-working, and patriotic.”
