Record Day in Greensboro!
The students from Draughn and East Burke had a fantastic showing in Greensboro at the State 2A Track and Field meet held on Aggie field at Greensboro A&T University.  From Wildcat Adam Manns placing 2nd in the Discus and 4th in Shotput in only his first year of competition to Cavalier Tanner Anderson winning the High Jump with a new State record of 7' 2.5".
Other highlights were Chance Sigmon and his 3rd place medal in the 800 meter (1/2 mile) run and the East Burke Women's 4x400 meter replay where they didn't medal but knocked 7 seconds off their overall best time!
Many more stories can be heard and shared and be sure to pickup a Morganton News Hearld for more stories but in the meantime, be sure to check out our complete photo gallery of all the events!
