Varsity Girls Second, Boys Fifth at Crowded Field in Stanberry

The Worth County girls were second and the boys fifth in a crowded field at Stanberry as the teams finally got to compete after a long period of rain. The discus and javelin were not held there, which took some points away from both teams. Defending state champion Mound City was first with 96 on the girls side, followed by 80 for Worth County. King City had 52, Rock Port 50, Platte Valley 37, South Holt 35, Stewartsville 31, St. Joseph Christian 28, East Buchanan 27, South Harrison 22, Stanberry 20, DeKalb 19, East Atchison 18.5, Osborn 5, North/West Nodaway 3.5, and Albany 3.
