The future appears bright for the rising Union City High School track program.

School Communications Director Mike Hutchens said the Middle School teams capped stellar seasons Thursday, winning first place on the girls’ side in their own eight-school invitational. The Tornado boys placed second among the strong field.

The Twister girls won all four of their meets this spring, while the Union City boys placed first in three of four competitions.

There’s plenty of promise for the next level for the Purple and Gold, as individuals and teams recorded strong finishes in Thursday’s middle school finale.
