SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitkoâ€™s girls track team excelled in the Three Rivers Conference last season.
For 2013, the Lady Wildcats are back for more and are hoping to take the conference championship once again.
Whitko won the Three Rivers Conference two ways last year, taking first in the conference meet, 48 points ahead of second-place Southwood, and also posting a 7-0 mark in the season, league-wise.
While the Wildcats graduated three seniors from last yearâ€™s team, Coach Gary Sims was excited about the talent that remains.
