Hazelwood Central Girls Track & Field is going through unfinished business after a 10th place finish last year (2015) ruined a great season.
So far the road to state for Hazelwood Central has been paved with lopsided wins in district and sectional competition. In Class Five, District Three May 14 at Lutheran North Hazelwood Central scored 195 points, about 98 better than runner up Francis Howell, while in Class Five, Sectional Two May 21 at Lutheran South Hazelwood Central scored 163 points, 80 better than runner up Columbia-Battle.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
