The Faith High School track team had 13 athletes who attended the SD State Track Meet in Rapid City, SD this last weekend.
The event spanning 2 days saw student athletes from across the state come together to compete against each other in many events. Some of the events went so long into the day, awards had to be given the next day!
Athletes on Faith’s team represented their full team and community well during the State Meet.
