The Juniata/Millersburg meet was coach Kim Hart’s last home meet before retiring. From being at the track when she was young to playing for Juniata in high school, she truly does love the sport! The 2022 meet went out with a bang, having the boys win 89-57 and the girls win 104-38. As a member of Kim’s last season, I truly can say she’s a fantastic coach and also person in life. I may not have been there for more than a season, but Kim has made me love the sport so much more.
The TVL meet was a strong meet needing the best in everyone to get a placement. With having EJ, Greenwood, Susquenita, Millersburg, and Juniata, it was sure to have great competition.
