Albion splits in track

The Albion girls earned an 8-1-60 victory over host Wilson this afternoon in the conclusion of a Niagara-Orleans League track meet which was started last week.

The Purple Eagles took the two events which were not held last week because of windy conditions to claim the victory. Chanyce Powell won the high jump (4-6) and Karisa Stark took the pole vault (7-6).

In the boys meet, Wilson won the high jump and pole vault to complete a 78-63 win over Albion.
