On March 22 at Lincoln High School, the Lowell track and field competed against the Lincoln Mustangs, Balboa Buccaneers and Wallenberg Bulldogs in the first track and field league meet of the season

The competition was focused on the frosh-soph divisions due to the majority of varsity runners withdrawing from the meet. Many Lowell varsity runners pulled out from their usual events because they were scheduled to attend a weekend trip to a Los Angeles track meet on March 23.

The team’s next meet will be at 3:30 p.m. on April 12 at home.
