CONWAY — The Kennett High track team was back on the road last Tuesday, traveling to Wolfeboro for its second meet of the season, a head-to-head clash with rival Kingswood.

“We didn’t get team scores, but I think our girls won the meet and the boys were second,” said Bernie Livingston, Eagles’ head coach. “It would have been nice to have had a third team competing, it always makes for better competition.”

The Eagles were missing about a dozen athletes due to the April vacation, but those athletes who did compete, turned in strong performances, according to Livingston.

Kennett is scheduled to host the first of two home meets this Tuesday at 4 p.m. when Kingwood and Plymouth come to town. Before the meet, at 3:45 p.m., the Eagles will pay tribute to the seniors for their commitment and dedication to the program.

“Senior appreciation is always fun,” he said. “We’ll have them run through the pole vault arch runway. Hopefully, the weather will hold off and we can get the meet in.”
