Just four points separated first-place finishing Lady Dinos from second-place Provo High School in the girls’ competition of the recent Carbon High Farm Bureau Invitational on Saturday.
After coming from a previous rough season-opener, Carbon Track Coach Jimmy Jewkes was amazed at the work his team put forth, especially with various distractions happening that day.
“Both sides just outperformed where I thought they were,” he said. “They brought their A-game for sure.”
The boys’ team fought their way to a ninth overall finish with both teams combining for a third-place finish overall.
The Emery Spartans grabbed a second-place finish in the boys’ competition behind Stansbury with Lady Spartans coming in eighth. Combined, both teams walked away with a fourth overall.
