The Olympus High School Track and Field team opened their season at Highland High School in a triangular against both Highland and Brighton. For many athletes this was their first time competing at a high school track and field event. Everyone did a great job and handled the burst of rain and hail gracefully. We are looking forward to a few weeks of solid training before our next competitions at East HS (JV) and Timpanogos HS (Varsity) on Wednesday, April 1st.
