Howard Continues Track and Field Dominance at County Championships
Junior Amanda Eliker scored 28 individual points for the Lions (1st in the 1600 and 3200 meter runs, second in the 800 meter run), who topped second-place Mount Hebron, 155.50 - 127.50. The boys were fueled by wins in the pole vault (senior Griffin Shirodkar) and the shot put (junior Collin Greene).
