Shelbyville boys track and Central A&M girls track notched wins on Tuesday at a Shelbyville home meet featuring Okaw Valley Conference foes.
Shelbyville boys scored 110 points, followed by Central A&M (73), St. Teresa (56), Sullivan-Okaw Valley (54), and Meridian (37). Central A&M girls scored 126.5 points, followed by St. Teresa (112), Shelbyville (61), SOV (55.5), and Meridian (8).
Some of the teams were not at full strength due to scheduling conflicts with baseball and softball. It was still a good working meet in what has been a long winter with an inclement early spring hampering outdoor meets.
