Let your "Sader Pride" shine and lead the way. -The LuHi Coaching Staff

Our BOYS track team needs to be recognized for their efforts at last night’s SECTIONAL Track Meet in Litchfield.  Zach F. had a couple personal bests in the 1600M run with a time of 4:47.99 and in the 800M run with a time of 2:08.23.  Garrett D. threw a "personal best" THREE times in the shot put fighting the big field to get into the finals. His first throw of 40 feet 2 inches was a personal best, but then he topped it,   TWICE! with 40 feet 10 inches and 41 feet 11 inches. Just when you think it can't get any better, Jay M. stepped to the track to blaze the 100M dash group by running an 11.5 second dash; then had a dazzling quick finish in the 200M dash with a run of 23.41 seconds.  LuHi broke another record in the Sectional Meet by placing high among the 16 team field with only 3 student athletes. Other teams praised their tenacity and ability to compete so well, once again showing that good training, determination, and a desire to be the best drive our LuHi student athletes to raise themselves to a higher level of achievement.  Great job guys!

Truman, then unanimously amended under President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to be designated as the first Thursday of May, The National Day of Prayer proclamation has been signed by every president since 1952.
