I believe both Perkins High School girls and boys ACTUALLY WON the district meet.  I'm curious if the  boys ever won it before and if so, when.  Simply reporting finish times and positions does not satisfy my curiosity!  How about you go a little deeper with your reporting?



How about you enjoy the coverage that you are getting, instead of complaining about everything?
