Indee boys, B-T girls win DC meet
The Independence/Gilmanton boys team snuck out a close win, while the Blair-Taylor girls cruised to the team title at the Dairyland Conference meet hosted by I/G last week Monday.
The Indee boys needed just about every point they could get as they defeated B-T by three points for the team title. The B-T girls, however, faced little competition, winning by more than 60 points.
Both I/G and B-T will compete on Thursday as B-T heads to Eleva-Strum and I/G to Melrose-Mindoro. They return to Independence for a full varsity meet this coming Monday for a final competition before the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association tournament series begins on June 14.
