The Saltillo Jr High track team went to the Rivercrest Relays on Monday (3-11) and had a fine showing as the 8th grade boys won the meet and the 7th grade girls got second. Coach Stephens was very pleased with their effort as all the kids have made great strides considering it was their first meet due to weather and the fact that Saltillo does not have a track.
