GH boys, girls track teams second at W.O. Invite

A week after edging out Grand Rapids Christian at the Frank Grimm Relays in Wyoming Park, the Eagles got a bit of revenge by nipping the Buccaneers' girls track and field team by just four points at Saturday's Von Ins Relays at West Ottawa. "We had a couple technical miscues that cost us this meet, but that's why we run these Saturday meets, to fine tune our skills,' coach John Tarr said.
