Simply put, Saline is #TrackTown. With the amazing athletes, the sheer number of athletes, the facilities and do not forget the best coaching staff anywhere in high school (and middle school) track + field, it is easy to see why Saline is on the map. You do not have a great program at the Varsity level without a great feeder program and Saline has the best there too! The Middle School Hornets held their first meet against Adrian and here are the final scores.
Boys – Saline 84 – Adrian 44

Fresh off of her amazing 3:20 Boston Marathon run, Coach Sandy Stafford had this to say which is an over view from the meet: “All the coaches were thrilled with this first meet, everyone ran very well. The field events had no time to practice before this meet due to weather and various other obstacles so their performances were very impressive as were the relay hand-offs with limited work as groups.”
The well certainly is not dry as the talent will keep on pouring into Saline High School!
