WAYNESVILLE — The Lebanon track and field team competed at the Missouri Class 5 District 5 track meet on Saturday at Waynesville High School, with many student-athletes qualifying for the sectional round.

In the district tournament, the top four from each event advance and earn All-District honors.

As a team, the girls’ placed fifth out of eight teams with a score of 91 and finished just three points behind fourth-place Columbia-Rock Bridge. The boys’ placed sixth out of eight teams with a score of 60.

"We knew it was going to be a really tough day. Looking at the performance list before the meet, it was pretty obvious that we were going to have to bring our best stuff to this meet and I can honestly say that our track team exceeded my expectations,” Lebanon head track coach Shane Rebmann said. “The kids came in fired up, they believed in what we are doing, and it really paid off. We had a season's best performance in almost 3/4ths of the events today, which is exactly what we hope for. Our kids dealt with the heat and the nerves better than any other team out there.”
