Morinville – It has been a few years since the Wolves dominated the track scene in North Central action, but the 2011 MCHS track team has brought the zone banner back to MCHS to hang proudly in the rafters. It truly was a team effort with excellent individual performances and a strong showing in the team relays that capped off a close win over our rivals from RF Staples-Westlock and Barrhead.

In total MCHS athletes brought home 41 medals: 20 gold – 14 silver – 7 bronze.

As well, an unofficial school record, 20 athletes qualified for Provincials by finishing 1st or 2nd in their events.

The students will take part in Alberta High School Provincial Track & Field Friday and Saturday
