Spartans Hold Track Banquet
The Ridgewood Spartans held their track banquet Sunday, June 13th. Both teams had successful years winning a number of dual meets and triangulars. The Spartan Girls team extended their season by one week sending two athletes to the Class 1A State Track Meet; Lauren Anderson in the High Jump and Miranda Reed in the 3200m run.
The boys competed throughout the season but weren’t able to get anyone past a tough sectional meet in Erie.
