The Grand Blanc High Schools Boys Track & Field Team was invited to participate and compete in the MITCA Team Track and Field State Meet held at Wyandotte Roosevelt High School this past Saturday (05-27-17). Only Regional Champions and Top Power rated teams were invited,. The format used to score this meet is based on true team depth and not individual point totals as done at the MHSAA meet the upcoming Saturday. The Bobcat boys scored 506.5 points earning the seventh place spot at the meet. This meet was super competitive featuring some of the best times posted nation wide. Each athlete entered scored points on a reduction scale. If there was 24 entries, then 24 points was awarded to first place and one point for last place.
