On April 15, the Okawville boys’ and girls’ junior high track teams competed at the Freeburg/Smithton Invitational in Freeburg. The top two teams received trophies and top three competitors in each event received ribbons. The boys placed sixth overall with 35 points. The girls earned third with 63 points, putting them behind Millstadt and Smithton.
