MHS District Track (4-4 & 5-2017)
The Muleshoe High School track teams competed in the District 2-3A Track Meet on the Lubbock Cooper High School Track Tuesday and Wednesday. The Mules finished fifth.
“Our team competed extremely well while dealing with some critical injuries,” said Mules track coach, Wes Wood. “Our varsity boys are extremely young as they competed without a single senior participant. Hopefully, that means a bright future.”
