    Yesterday, the South Valley Track and Field team went up against Highland Junior. It was a tough fight to the finish line during this head to head meet. By dominating many events in this slugfest, our very own Sabercats got the upperhand giving them the edge to win by a score of 52-48. Both the Girls and Boys teams have continued their winning streak, and they will be heading into the District Conference meet where they have proven themselves to be true contenders for the championship. Way to Go, Sabercats and Good luck next week at conference.
