Fighting Irish track team members qualify for South State

Thursday afternoon, St. Patrick hosted the Regional Track Meet.  District 2A and 4A athletes that qualified for their events at last weeks District Meet (meaning that these athletes finished fourth place or above in their event), came out to compete.  To qualify for the South State Meet, the same requirements needed to be met, a place of fourth or above accomplished in their event.  Many parents, fellow students, and teachers came out to support the Irish.  Many of our athletes qualified for South State which will be held next Saturday in Rankin.  The girl’s team came in second overall, and the boy’s team finished out in fourth overall.  We are very proud of our hardworking track team members!
