Willapa Valley's girls won the five-team North Beach Invite by scoring 166 points to defeat the lady Hyaks of North Beach (132) last Thursday at Oyehut. Ocosta was third at 118, followed by Mary M. Knight (30) and North River (16).
“It was great weather for track,” Valley head coach Dave Ege told the Herald. “I think we are looking good heading into the last week of the regular season.”
