HCC Dragons track takes on Dr. Toms Invite

The Howard Community College track team traveled to Lynchburg College March 22 to compete in the Dr. Toms Invitational. The Dragons went south in search of warmer weather and qualifying marks. At the meet, they found both.

“This is a good meet to start the outdoor season,” Coach Steve Musselman said. “There was a good mixture of Division II/III programs that we are able to compete against.”
