Butler Bears Track: Class 2 District 6 results

On Saturday the Butler Bears track team traveled to Skyline High School to compete in the District Championships. After a two hour rain delay the skies cleared up and we had a beautiful day to compete. Your kids of your school represented themselves very well. I am proud of the performance that our team put out there. To advance to the sectional meet an athlete must be in the top 4 of the respected event. As a team, the Butler Bears placed 3rd place overall! I am pleased with this, since this has been our highest ranking at the district meet since I have been here. Although we have to say goodbye to some of our teammates, some of them still earned points for their team to be in the top 3. Here are your top 8 finishers and sectional qualifiers:
