South Carolina High School Wins State Track Title Despite Not Having a Track

Saturday May 24th, 2014


Central High School in Pageland, South Carolina, recently captured a 2-AA state title in track and field despite not having a track to practice on.

It sounds like something out of an inspirational Disney movie, but it's true. As WBTV reported, the team trained on a pothole-filled grass field, using broken hurdles and a single starting block (affectionately known as "Old Rusty").

Seriously, congratulations to Central High School for the remarkable accomplishment.
