El Dorado Christian varsity track team traveled to compete at the 2019 Missouri Christian Schools Athletic Association state track finals Friday- Saturday, May 3-4, in Carl Junction.

Competition started Friday evening with two inches of rain and athletes huddled under canopies. After an hour of deliberation, the afternoon events were postponed and 18 teams headed to hotels to rest. Saturday morning came early, but with it came sunny skies.

The MCSAA competition is divided into two divisions, each with nine teams. The ECS Lady Buffalos took six girls, and those six brought home first place in Division II. When totaling team scores, ECS ranked third overall in both divisions.

One ECS athlete, Olivia Bryson, placed in the top-10 point positions. Bryson, an eighth grader, scored 21 of her team’s total points.
