Setting a new standard of excellence for future athletes isn’t something that happens at every track and field meet, but Moffat County High School runners have made their mark as they head into the last leg of the season. A record-setting, first-place time in the boys 4-by-800-meter relay event was one of many victories for the MCHS track team at the 4A Western Slope League Meet on Thursday and Friday in Grand Junction. The boys team notched six wins in individual events and took second overall. The relay set a positive tone for the meet as one of the first events of the day.
