Locals Shine At Meet of Champions

Esther Higgwe and her teammates on the Monterey Trail track and field team were the stars of Saturday's Meet of Champions, the largest track and field event thus far this spring. The event is usually at Hughes Stadium, but because of the construction of a new track and football field there, it was moved to American River College.

Higgwe won both the girls' 100 and 200 meters. She and the Mustangs' relay team also took first place in the 4x100 meters and the 4x400 meters.
