Returning from a fast and successful Friday meet in Cedaredge where the weather was hot and the times/distances hotter, the Cowboys track team gear up for the upcoming weekend.  As the track season begins to taper, the GHS Cowboys will be traveling to Grand Junction this weekend for the two-day league meet.  In past years both the girl and boys teams have shown very strong performances and placed well in the team standings.  The league meet is the last chance to qualify for the state meet, held in Denver May 15th, 16th and 17th.  The track team has their goals set high with winning in mind.  Although the girls’ team numbers are low, they still have a strong base that could land them as league champions.  The boys have had a successful season and are looking to trample the competition in 3A.
