Final results from County Track Meet

Each year at the Greenville County meet an award is given to the top male and female track athlete and the top male and female field athlete.  The awards are voted on by the county coaches.  Mauldin Senior Sean Wright was clearly our top male overall athlete, winning events in both the field and on the track!  Sean was the only boy at the county meet to win 4 events, scoring 80 points for our team!!!  Sean is your 2008 Greenville County Champion in the 400 meter dash, 400 meter hurdles, Triple Jump, and the anchor leg of the 4x400 meter relay!! And all of this on a concrete track!  Congratulations, Sean.
