Norwell has approximately just 20 girls on their indoor track team. But winning championships is about quality not quantity.

But they were not one dimensional in their attack; scoring in 9 of the 13 contested events.
Chuck Martin has compiled every division champion since 1918. Equally impressive to the list itself are the teams that were able to string together multiple consecutive championships. St. John’s put together six in a row from 1957 to 1962. The Newton South girls and Mansfield girls are both sitting on three consecutive championships. Can they make it four this week?
