Valpo Boys Track & Field Win Their First Meet of the Season


Valparaiso Boys Track & Field won their first meet of the season. Valpo hosted the meet against Gary West Side High School. All gave their best at the meet. This is indoor season making a smaller track more challenging. The track is much smaller than the outdoor track so events have been modified to compensate, but it is still very fast paced and exciting to watch.

Top 3 for each event are as follows:
