Rails Beat Ottumwa 119-49

The HS Men’s team hosted the Ottumwa Bulldogs at home on Thursday (12/3). The guys put on a dominating performance, winning 10 of 11 events and taking many second and/or third places too! The win puts the team’s win-loss record at 4-0 overall and 1-0 vs. conference opponents.

Meanwhile the guys are continuing to train hard, pushing themselves in every practice. The Rails hope to make school history this season and know that it will take a lot of hard work to get there.

Congrats to the guys on their win!
