Lady Tigers earn second at SSU High School Invitational
Placeholder Image

Last Friday’s Savannah State University High School Invitational drew several local track teams, including those from Liberty County High School and Bradwell Institute’s Lady Tigers and JV boys’ teams. The local squads tested their skills against 12 other high schools from around the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire areas.
Because of rain, the meet was shortened to 14 events, and when the final points were tallied, the Lady Tigers took second place with 99 points, and the Lady Panthers took third with 81.75. The Beaufort High School girls’ team, with a total of 133 points, came in first.
Competition was fierce in the boys’ division, and Liberty managed to place fourth with 59 points. The BI JV boys earned seventh place with 28. Beaufort nabbed the top slot with 133 points, and Ridgeland High School placed second with 91.
