It was just five years ago that the 2015 Barker track teams enjoyed a most memorable season as the Raiders swept both the Niagara-Orleans League boys and girls championships for the first time in school history.

The N-O title was the fifth in a row for the Barker boys and the historic first ever for the Lady Raiders.

Both teams went 6-0 in N-O dual meet competition.

Narrow wins of 74-67 over Medina and 72-65 over Wilson were the Barker boys squads’ closest calls.

A season opening 75-65 victory over defending champion Akron and a closing 75-66 win over Albion were the Lady Raiders closest calls.

The Barker boys scored a trio of wins at the All-League meet as Casey Webb capured the 400 Hurdles and Brett Holland the Discus. Webb also teamed up with Carter Pisarski, Jacob Arnold and Chris Sweeney to win the 3200 Relay.

The Lady Raiders likewise captured three events at the All-League meet. Caitlyn Mason won the Long Jump, Gabby Clare the 400 Hurdles and Kellsi Flegal the 200.
