Katie Mack finished third overall in the High Jump (4’10) and Drew Seabase ran a 5:02.6 1600 in his first ever indoor meet.

“It was a fun meet to participate in. This years’ team is very young, which bodes well for the future of Alpena running, but they ran like they were seasoned runners tonight.
