The Fluco girls’ indoor track team turned in a strong performance on Jan. 21 easily topping the Warriors from Western Albemarle by a score of 77.5 to 41.5. The boys’ team did not fare as well, losing to  the Warriors by a nearly reverse score of 74 to 46. Girls’ Coach Rose Brogan said that it was quite windy and chilly outside when the meet began, but that it warmed up as the meet progressed and turned into a nice day.
