The Prairie View track team hosted the Pioneer League track meet on May 12.

If you have been keeping up with Prairie View track this season you would know that the girls’ team is very good always placing top three and more often than not winning the meet. In this meet, the girls won their first league meet since 1995 and did it in convincing fashion. The Lady Buffs won the meet scoring 194 points while the second place team, Burlington, only had 120 points. The boys’ team placed seventh scoring 10 points.

Running events are the strength of this Prairie View girls’ team and that showed once again this meet. Kinley Baker placed third in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.59 seconds. Kelsey Konitzer was fifth, 13.95, while Jessica Petric was seventh, 14.04.
