While the meet was cut short due to flooding and pending storms, all student-athletes attending wholeheartedly supported their teammates, despite not having the privilege of competing themselves. The Cougars continue to pursue excellence next Thursday at The Scots Invitational at The Galloway School in Atlanta beginning at 4:00PM.
