The Devine Arabians scored 66 points in only 8 events at the Daetwyler Relays in Jourdanton last Friday evening. Slick surfaces caused by rain led to the decision to cancel out both sets of hurdles and several other field events. Devine managed a 4th place finish finishing behind Carrizo Springs (89), Poteet (78), and Pleasanton (76).
“It was unfortunate that many of our ladies’ best events were canceled,” stated Head Coach Lynn Cozby. “If not for the wetness, we would have had an excellent chance to finish on top.”
