-A A +A
By The Staff

The restriction that forces athletes to compete in four or fewer events was lifted on Tuesday for a dual meet between the Pana and Vandalia boys track teams, and the Vandals took full advantage to win the meet, 74-64.

Only seven Vandalia athletes were available for the meet, and each of them placed, including nine firsts and nine seconds.

The meet serves as a tune-up for the freshmen and sophomores, who will compete in the South Central Conference Frosh/Soph Championships on Saturday in Litchfield at 9 a.m.

The varsity SCC Championships are next Tuesday at Greenville.
