Track: Girls receive state academic honor

 Not only did the Tiger girls excel on the track where they finished tied for fourth at the Class AA state meet, they also did outstanding work in the classroom.

Coach Tom Hart and his staff recently received the good news his team had achieved the gold level of Academic All-State distinction determined by the Minnesota State Track and Field Coaches Association.

The award was determined by averaging the highest grade point averages of 10 members of the team's section entrants. Farmington's composite grade point average was 3.93 on a 4.0 scale.

" It is awesome to have student athletes who are as good in the classroom as they are on the track," Hart said.
