            After years of traveling to compete, the Melbourne Bearkatz brought the competition home in their first annual track and field meet. With the junior high meet on Tuesday and the senior high meet on Thursday, it was a busy yet very successful event. Melody Carroll, Melbourne’s’ track coach for the girls, gave credit to the many people who showed up to give a hand. “We had so many kids and adults who gave of their time to help. A track meet is an athletic event that takes quite a few volunteers. We are so blessed at the Melbourne School District to have a community who supports us in every way.” Boys track coach Clayton McWilliams added, “We couldn’t have done it without our sponsors, Modern Woodman, FNBC, and G.H. Miller’s and Sons, who purchased the hurdles for the event.”
