The Tosa East Boys Track & Field team scored 142 points to capture their first conference title of any kind since 1989! This is also the first conference title for the team since joining the Greater Metro Conference in 1998.
It’s no secret that our strength is on the track, but we had many individuals step up on the track and in the field to help us build the 11 point victory over Brookfield East.
“It’s a great start. We will enjoy the victory because it is a huge accomplishment in this conference, but we know we now have the target on our back and will need to be ready to defend at Relays and Outdoor Conference”
