ROXANA - Local track athletes performed well at the Roxana Relays held Monday afternoon at Charlie Raich Field, with the Civic Memorial boys and Highland girls coming out on top in the team standings.

Luke Meyer, the Civic Memorial speed and sprinters coach, said the squad showed up and executed what they wanted to do in the meet.

"We came out and pulled it out," he said. "The medley format was interesting and we had a lot of surprises. We knew the distance guys would do a good job, but the entire team did a good job. Going forward we have a lot left in our MVC season, and we have to get ready for the conference meet, county and sectionals. Hopefully, the weather will get warmer. I am really proud of the team, they are relatively young. A couple of senior leaders have really stepped forward for us."
