“It felt good to watch people run, jump, and throw again. The best thing about the Ainsworth Relays is that everyone was able to compete, no one was left home. It gave us coaches and athletes an idea what we need to work on,” said Coach Hilker.

The Eagles will compete April 6th at Battle Creek, then April 9th at Broken Bow.
