EUDORA – The Louisburg Middle School track and field teams hit the road Tuesday when they ventured for a triangular meet with Spring Hill, and for the first time all season, the Wildcats didn’t break a school record.

That didn’t mean Louisburg didn’t have success, however.

Between the four teams in the two grade levels, Louisburg won 17 events, including five each from the eighth-grade boys and seventh-grade girls teams that racked up a lot of points on the track.
