The boys and girls track program will host its annual Jerry B. Griffin Invitational track meet at 8 a.m. Saturday on Wilemon Field.

“I considered that the most challenging event is the two miles because its eight laps around the track and an athlete has to be in good shape to be able to run eight laps at a consistent past in order for him or her to be successful,” track coach David Hill said.

About 20 schools will compete in track and field events.

Returning SHHS athletes are senior Taran Blackmon (relays), sophomore Perla Flores (3200/1600), junior Javione Carr (hurdles/relays), junior Juan Garza (400 meters/relays), senior Roberto Garcia Jr. (3200/1600), senior Jonathan Chavez (800/400/relays) and sophomore Angel Avendano (3200/1600).
