McMurray athletes finish track season

The McMurray track and field team closed its season on May 25 at North Kitsap High School in the West Sound League Meet.

All seven schools at the meet brought their best athletes to compete, and McMurray placed fourth for both the boys and the girls teams. McMurray took first place in the boys and girls 400 meters, with Jack Brenner and Abigail Kim undefeated for the season.
