The Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond jr. high girls track teams were hosts to Arcola and Villa Grove on Thursday, April 15. Both the seventh and eighth grade teams came out on top in the team scoring. Both Arcola and Villa Grove were competing with smaller numbers than the previous meet due to jr. high basketball season going on at the same time.
