North Clarion Girls’ Coach Doug Jackson shared, “The North Clarion girls won their final conference meet by the narrowest of margins. After all events were finished, North Clarion and Karns City were locked in a 75-75 tie. However North Clarion won the tie-breaker because the team earned ten first-place finishes to Karns City’s eight.
“We held back on some girls competing in four events because we wanted them to be at their best for the Redbank Invite this Thursday. However, the girls pulled through with the win.
“We may have missed earning a league championship by one point, but I am more than proud of their efforts and camaraderie. I can’t wait to see what they do at the Redbank Invite and districts.”
