DUNCAN — The goal for members of the Velma-Alma and Waurika girls track teams on Saturday was simple, qualify for the state meet.

Nikki Wright turned in a solid second place finish in the discus throw, finishing with a best attempt of 91”8’.

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
