Stratford Stadium was the site of the Area Track & Field Meet on Friday, and qualifiers from Districts 17 and 18 - 6A battled it out for entries into next week’s Region III Meet in Humble. As was the case in the District Meets, the top-four individuals in each event at Area secured their spots at Regionals.
The Stratford girls ended the day third-place in team points, trailing second-place Cypress Creek by only a single point. The Memorial girls were crowned Area Team Champions.
The Stratford boys tied Westbury for third place, behind second place Cypress Creek and Team Champion Houston Lamar.
Congratulations to our 11 Spartan girls and 8 Spartan boys that qualified for the Region III Meet next weekend.
