Normally, all of the Three Rivers Conference schools compete in one track and field meet. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure this year, the conference held two girls track events on Thursday, May 27, with Three Rivers West schools at Morrison High School and Three Rivers East teams in Kewanee.

Sherrard won the Three Rivers West meet with 192 points, followed by Orion, second, 109; Rockridge, third, 78; Riverdale, fourth, 61; Fulton, fifth, 55, and Morrison, sixth, 39.
