TRACK & FIELD: Saline Girls Take 3rd in SEC Red Meet
The Saline girls' track and field team placed third in the SEC Red meet held Friday at Lincoln High School.
Saline, Pioneer and Huron battled for the top spot. Pioneer won with 147 points, five more than Huron and 10 more than Saline.
The Hornets managed to challenge for the meet despite just one first place finish.
That came courtesy of junior Nicole Warren, who won the long jump with a leap of 17-01.5 - more than a foot better than the second-place finisher.
On the track, the Hornets had many highlights.
