Sycamore Aviators Win Second Consecutive Boys GMC Track Title

The Sycamore Aviators and the Mason Comets dueled for the league title the entire evening with the championship being decided in the last two events.  The Aves persevered over the Comets by a team score of 131 to 128, needless to say a razor-thin margin. This is the second consecutive GMC Boys Track title for the Aviators.  The Aviator piled up points in the field events and relays and then had to fight off the Comet depth in the distance races. All in all, a great night of interscholastic track competition.
