The Melissa Cardinals competed at the area track meet in Princeton on April 17, coming away as the Area runner-up with 110 points. They finished three points behind eventual champion Dallas Madison.

"I’m extremely proud of all of our boys," Melissa coach Travis Roberson said. "They were down by 35 points when the running events started at 1:30 and fought their way back to take a slight lead going into the mile relay. We competed against much larger schools and performed exceptionally well all day."

The regional meet will be held at Texas A&M Commerce on Friday and Saturday. There are 12 boys who qualified for the regional meet.
