NFV boys' track only had one meet last week after the Warrior Invite hosted by Wapsie Valley on Monday, April 22, was cancelled due to the weather.

The TigerHawks did get Friday’s meet in Starmont in, finishing in a tie with Jesup for the top spot with 120 points apiece.

The weather wasn’t great with temps in the 50’s and a stiff wind; fortunately trees helped block the head wind, but did aid athletes running towards the finish line. 

The big news for NFV was the fact Zach Masasman was held out of the last two races because of a slight groin sprain. The senior should be fine, but will be held out of the race Monday, April 29 as a precaution.

While Massman did not run the final two relays, he did earn a pair of gold medals in the 200 and 400 dashes.
