Always competing and always improving. The Wildcats had a lot of strong performances as we hosted Oswego East and West Aurora.

The night was kicked off on the track with a great team performance in a very competitive 4x800 relay. Aiden Haughian, Mike Forbear, Paul De Avila, and Alex Rojo all ran lifetime bests in the relay to run the fastest time the Wildcats have run in 5 years. The distance 4x400 was 3 for 4 on PRs with Mike Forbear, Harlan Matson and Cam Mulyk all running PR splits.
