Weston Fantz earned a gold and a silver medal in the 400 hurdles last week to lead the NFV boy’s track team.

The boy’s opened the week in Edgewood, where they finished fifth in the field of 15 teams. The TigerHawks amassed 66 points, a mere point behind host, Ed-Co. Bellevue won with 140 points

With so many teams in the meet and each team with some quality individuals and/or relays, medals, were hard to accumulate.

However, with points going down to eighth place in individual events the TigerHawks were able to score multiple times in many events.

NFV moved its first home track meet of the season last week from Friday to Thursday due to the threat of rain.

Despite only having a days rest between the Tuesday, March 26, meet in Waverly and the home-opener, the TigerHawks ran well at the finishing second to a very good Crestwood team, 178-115.

  “It was a good meet for us; we were very balanced,” commented head coach Mark Nuss.  It was good to see us earn medals in all four of the field events. It’s the first time in a while that we’ve had that   happen.”
