The Oak Harbor track teams competed in their final regular season Wesco meet Thursday, April 29, at Everett Memorial Stadium.
The meet was the first of two contests in two days for the Wildcats; therefore, the Oak Harbor coaches juggled the line up and limited the number of events for some of the athletes. The result was lower team scores than usual.
The Wildcats will take part in the Twilight Invitational in Mount Vernon Friday at 5:30 p.m.
