The boys were league champions in the 4x200m, 4x400m, 4x800m, and set an EMAC record in the 4x100m relay.

Senior captain Jayvion Swain, who took part in the 4x200m, says, “It was the moment we all were

Lewis says, “I’m super proud of our team and all the records we brought back to Rangeview… we performed great as a whole.”

The girls had a close fight for first but were able to beat a competitive Brighton team while the boys beat their rival Gateway for first as well.

Head Coach Chris Carhartt says, “What we did means a lot to me personally because coming over it was my goal since I did it at Hinkley… we have a much better team here and our numbers were our only one goal.”

This Saturday will be the last meet held by Rangeview High School to qualify for state. It will take place at Aurora Public Schools Stadium at 9am.
