LSE track coach Morgan Sprigg said both teams did a great job at Fulton. “It was a combined seventh and eighth grade team meet, which means I got to switch some things up and take my top seeds,” Sprigg said.  “With that being said, we had some seventh graders do really well at stepping up and running against some tough eighth graders. I was really impressed with both teams and I am seeing improvement everyday. We go to Smith Cotton on Thursday and I’m excited to see how we do.”
